Due to many reasons, up to now, the surplus public assets after the arrangement of agencies and administrative units have not been used properly. Many properties that have not been used for a long time have been damaged and degraded. The conversion of uses and handover of public works and assets to other agencies and units for management and use are not many, causing waste of State assets. The objective reason is that the Central system of guiding documents on handling surplus public assets after the merger of administrative units and public service units is not clear and specific. Besides, the processes and procedures for handling houses, land, and headquarters of agencies and units are still complicated. In particular, for redundant cultural house projects in villages, hamlets, and residential groups, there are difficulties due to legal documents, because there is no way to prove the origin of assets, because of the investment capital to build the projects. mobilized from people’s contributions.
The subjective reason is that local party committees and authorities have not been proactive in developing plans, as well as carrying out legal procedures and procedures to handle surplus public assets; The province’s specialized agencies have not been thorough and active in urging and guiding the handling of surplus assets.
In order to soon have a plan to convert and effectively use surplus public assets, recently, Mr. Lai The Nguyen, Permanent Deputy Secretary of the Thanh Hoa Provincial Party Committee – Standing Deputy Head of the Steering Committee implemented the arrangement of units. District and commune level administration of Thanh Hoa province had a “trip” and directed and urgently developed documents instructing units on the process and procedures for converting the purpose and use of works. In particular, it is proposed to completely resolve redundant cultural houses in villages, hamlets, and residential groups in the direction of handing them over to the community to manage and use, creating conditions for people to organize biological activities. cultural activities in the community.
