Training policy at your institution

La solicitud fue exitosa.

Dear European Court of Auditors,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

1. Documents related to “Study Support Scheme” provided to member staff within the Training Policy of your institution similar to the Scheme provided by Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) to its staff accessible from here http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/701/r... at point 6.4 and here http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/701/r... and in the other relevant documents accessible from here http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/list_...

2. Information if the first university studies, i.e first one after high school, are reimbursed by your institution.

3. How many staff of your institution are STUDENTS at EU Universities similar to the one mentioned by FRA here http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/701/r...

4. How many such STUDENTS of your institution benefit of the Reimbursement Scheme for their University Studies , Master Studies and PhD Studies, similarly to the Scheme applied by FRA and mentioned here at point 6.4. http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/701/r...

5. Decision by your institution`s Governing Board for granting reimbursement of individual University Studies, Master Studies and PhD Studies to your staff. If this Decision is not under competence of Governing Board, I request access to the decisions by Appointing Authority (Director).

6. Recommendations, opinions or any other relevant documents containing the position of Staff Committee of your institution on the “Study Support Scheme” for individual studies in form of university, master and PhD studies.

7. How your institution ensure the equal treatment within the promotion exercise and recruitment procedures, when in the Promotion list or Recruitment list appears STAFF –STUDENTS and REGULAR STAFF (i.e. staff having their university, master of PhD studies completed at the date of recruitment).

This is not part of Request I submit under Regulation 1049/2001, but I would very much appreciate to have your opinion on these questions:
a) Do you consider legal and in line with EU Legislation to assimilate training with individual studies in form of University studies, Master studies and Phd studies?
b) Do you consider legal to pay such individual studies from Public Budget? Are you aware of some specific provisions for such payments? (I could not find such rules).
c) Do you consider fair and equal that some of staff have this opportunity to be paid from EU Public budget (so from taxpayers money) for their university, master and PhdD studies and some of staff do not have this opportunity, because they simply do not need such study-payments (having all their studies completed).

Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.

Yours faithfully,

Kurt Weiss

Dear European Court of Auditors,

Thank you for your reply. I would like to request access to the document which makes classification between "education courses" and "training courses" in the frame of Staff Regulation - article 24 cited in the two documents annexed.

University courses and Master courses are "Education courses" and not "Training courses".

Would it be possible to grant me access to any document or at least to indicate a relevant article of any law which provides for the assimilation of "education courses" to "training courses" (in the Staff Regulation meaning)?
Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

Kurt Weiss

ECA Press dejó un comentario ()

The status displayed for this request is/was erroneous as of 15:42 (CET) of 07 October 2013. All correspondence to the requestor was done within the statutory limits. The status shows that the European Court of Auditors should have replied by 27 September, which it had. In fact, the requestor once again requested more information on 25 September IN RESPONSE TO THE ECA PROVIDING HIM THE REQUESTED INFORMATION on the 18th of SEPTEMBER.

The additional information was sent to the requestor on 07 October, well before the statutory time limit.
