Government Note-Keeping Is Criticized

Aug 13,2001
Central government agencies such as the Ministry of Finance and Economy and the Office of Government Policy Coordination are failing to properly record minutes of major policy meetings, according to a government report.

The report, submitted by 34 central government agencies to Representative Lee Sung-hun of the Grand National Party, contends that 143 meetings of the 297 attended by vice minister-level or higher government officials were not properly documented.

The Act on the Management of Archives by Public Agencies mandates fully-recorded minutes of government meetings attended by the president and prime minister, or other meetings attended by officials of vice minister-level or higher.

The requirement was put in place last year to ease policy coordination among agencies, but the Office of Government Policy Coordination did not keep minutes for six committee meetings, including one on improving information infrastructure.

The Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development did not have full minutes for four meetings attended by 10 cabinet ministers. The Ministry of Finance and Economy also failed to keep complete minutes to five meetings presided over by Jin Nyum, the deputy prime minister for economy.
