Director-General Meinolf Dieckmann Director-General Meinolf Dieckmann

Di­rec­torate-Gen­er­al VM as­sumes, among oth­ers, the fol­low­ing tasks for oth­er fed­er­al au­thor­i­ties:

  • re­cruit­ment
  • elec­tron­ic per­son­nel and work­ing time man­age­ment
  • fi­nan­cial ser­vices
  • ex­am­i­na­tion of the uni­form ap­pli­ca­tion of the civ­il ser­vice reg­u­la­tions and col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing leg­is­la­tion as well as ran­dom check in the area of al­lowances; con­tact per­son for an­ti-cor­rup­tion in­clud­ing cor­rup­tion pre­ven­tion
  • on­line ser­vices (de­vel­op­ment, edit­ing and host­ing of web­sites)
  • or­ga­ni­za­tion­al re­view and con­sul­tan­cy
  • the pro­cess man­age­ment com­pe­tence cen­tre
  • the Ger­man CAF Cen­tre
  • pro­cess-ori­ent­ed guid­ance and IT con­sul­tan­cy
  • as­sign­ment to pay groups

The Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion pro­vides sup­port ser­vices, ap­ply­ing the shared ser­vices prin­ci­ple. The use of IT al­lows new forms of co­op­er­a­tion: tra­di­tion­al tasks can be fur­ther sys­tem­atized and com­bined. Di­rec­torate-Gen­er­al VM sup­ports its client au­thor­i­ties in the con­text of a di­vi­sion of labour in ad­min­is­tra­tive work pack­ages while de­ci­sion-mak­ing re­mains with the client. By cen­tral­iz­ing tasks, client au­thor­i­ties are re­lieved of rou­tine work and can con­cen­trate more in­ten­sive­ly on their core tasks. Oth­er ad­van­tages are low­er costs, an im­proved ser­vice and a uni­form ap­pli­ca­tion of the law.

An­oth­er area of ac­tiv­i­ty at VM is vo­ca­tion­al train­ing. In its of­fices in Berlin and Cologne/Bonn, the BVA of­fers cen­tral in-ser­vice train­ing in ad­min­is­tra­tive pro­fes­sions as well as fur­ther train­ing to qual­i­fy for work as cer­ti­fied se­nior clerk in pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion (Ver­wal­tungs­fach­wirt). This of­fer is tar­get­ed at 100 fed­er­al au­thor­i­ties and more than 1,600 (vo­ca­tion­al) trainees. Fur­ther­more, civ­il ser­vants of the in­ter­me­di­ate non-tech­ni­cal ser­vice un­der­go train­ing in Cologne to pre­pare them for em­ploy­ment in the fed­er­al ad­min­is­tra­tion. Po­lice of­fi­cers re­ceive train­ing as well to qual­i­fy for the in­ter­me­di­ate non-tech­ni­cal ser­vice in the fed­er­al ad­min­is­tra­tion.

In ad­di­tion, the BVA is the com­pe­tent agen­cy pur­suant to the Vo­ca­tion­al Train­ing Act (Berufs­bil­dungs­ge­setz) for 17 supreme fed­er­al au­thor­i­ties, the Ger­man Bun­destag and the Bun­desrat with 350 fed­er­al train­ing lo­ca­tions and al­most 4,000 trainees in 70 pro­fes­sions. The "com­pe­tent agen­cy" for in­stance mon­i­tors vo­ca­tion­al train­ing and ad­vis­es train­ing providers.

Fur­ther­more, the BVA has been pro­vid­ing part­ner au­thor­i­ties as well as grant re­cip­i­ents in pol­i­tics, cul­ture, sport and sci­ence with com­pre­hen­sive au­dit and con­sul­tan­cy ser­vices in the fields of or­ga­ni­za­tion and per­son­nel for over 15 years. BVA con­sul­tants work as neu­tral ex­perts and de­vel­op tai­lor-made so­lu­tions.

A wide cir­cle of users can ac­cess this Di­rec­torate-Gen­er­al's knowl­edge al­so on­line, f.i. via the "Hand­buch für Or­gan­i­sa­tion­sun­ter­suchun­gen und Per­son­albe­darf­ser­mit­tlung", a man­u­al on or­ga­ni­za­tion­al re­view and the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of staff re­quired, via a pro­cess por­tal and the CAF net­work. The Cen­tral Of­fice for Con­sul­tan­cy Re­quests was es­tab­lished at the BVA to ef­fi­cient­ly man­age all in­com­ing re­quests in the field of ad­min­is­tra­tive or­ga­ni­za­tion and mod­ern­iza­tion.
