Ad­min­is­tra­tive ser­vices

The Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion (BVA) not on­ly as­sumes spe­cial­ist tasks, but al­so pro­vides ad­min­is­tra­tive ser­vices in sup­port of oth­er au­thor­i­ties. Thus, clients are re­lieved of rou­tine work and can de­vote them­selves to their core tasks. There is a di­vi­sion of labour: the BVA sup­ports its clients in ad­min­is­tra­tive work pack­ages while de­ci­sion-mak­ing re­mains with the client. IT helps con­tin­u­ous­ly im­prove and ex­pand the range of ser­vices of­fered.

Among oth­er ser­vices, the BVA pro­vides cen­tral ac­count­ing for many in­sti­tu­tions: trans­porta­tion times and de­lays are re­duced thanks to the dig­i­tal and stan­dard­ized pro­cess­ing of in­voic­es.

Fur­ther­more, on­line ed­i­to­ri­al teams can make use of dif­fer­ent ser­vices. BVA ed­i­tors sup­port web­sites, en­ter con­tents or up­date sites in con­sul­ta­tion with clients.

Fol­low­ing the Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment’s move from Bonn to Berlin, it was nec­es­sary to re­or­ga­nize mail ex­change in 1999. Since then, the BVA, as the Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment’s cen­tral ser­vice provider, has been co­or­di­nat­ing mail ex­change be­tween the con­trac­tor and the 109 par­tic­i­pat­ing in­sti­tu­tions in Berlin and in the area of Cologne and Bonn. Fur­ther­more, about 600 fed­er­al in­sti­tu­tions in Ger­many have signed the frame­work con­tract on parcels and mail ship­ment.

Eu­ro­pean Cit­i­zens' Ini­tia­tive

Since 1 April 2012, the Lis­bon Treaty in­tro­duces a new form of pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion in Eu­ro­pean Union pol­i­cy shap­ing. EU cit­i­zens have the op­por­tu­ni­ty to launch a so-called Eu­ro­pean Cit­i­zens' Ini­tia­tive to in­vite the Eu­ro­pean Com­mis­sion to bring for­ward pro­pos­als for le­gal acts in all pol­i­cy ar­eas where the Com­mis­sion has the pow­er to do so.
