2-4 September: ALPAK Rural Tourism Fair. Folk performance, fairs and traditional craftsmen’s fair. timetable

This year, town councils in Alba County have refrained from sending their employees to courses at sea, with one exception, one in Alba Iulia.

Most budgets have taken courses online, for free, or have been sent to paid courses already with European funding.

But not in Alba Yulia, where this summer budget employees benefited from training courses in the Black Sea, each paid tens of thousands of lei.

Some of Gabriel’s subordinates went to Mamaia, Venus, and Saturn for public money, in the middle of the summer season, and thus continued their former city administration practice.

Public institutions are obligated by law to send their employees to training courses and to provide them with the opportunity for professional development.

However, in some cases, this is just a legal loophole through which some budget workers who are in the employer’s blessing are rewarded with paid stays in tourist areas, especially at sea, during the summer.

Vacations paid with public money with the family, disguised as courses and vocational training courses, are a national sport in Romanian public administration.

Tens of thousands of budget workers “take advantage” of what they imagine is a “legal” gateway to free vacation with their families, without, officially, on vacation.

Purchasing is in most cases per individual cycle, which allows for direct purchase, thus eliminating the need for auction, which would be more straightforward and cumbersome.

Trips of this kind have been accepted for many years by all state institutions, from the Audit Bureau to anti-corruption structures that see no problem in these phenomena.

Alba24 requested information from city councils and municipalities in the county. Below, the answers.
