06. Permanent cooperative for the management of the project structures. (At least 2 hours).
In the section division of responsibilities the responsibilities of households, tank commissions. well commissions, the General Management and the Central Committee within the framework of integrated development projects have been discussed.
This section is about the passage of responsibilities for the management of structures to the Permanent Cooperative for the management of the project structures during the course of project execution.
Look at the slide showing:
From the drawing, it can be seen that the promoters of an integrated development project will usually form a cooperative NGO for the execution of the project which is legally responsible for project execution. Once project execution has started, the promoter-partners can also proceed with the formation of a second NGO for the cooperative on-going management of the project structures.
Integrated development is about the creation of social, financial, productive, and services structures in a critical order of sequence.
In principle, once a given structure has been set up and operative, if can, where necessary with the help and support of the NGO responsible for project execution, get on with the autonomous management of its tasks. That is why responsibility for each newly created individual project (and operative) structure is passed over to the organs of the cooperative NGO for the permanent management of the project structures, once the Management Cooperative itself has been formed.
Once the Moraisian workshop for the formation of the tank commissions has been completed, the members of the tank commissions can be elected. Some tank commissions will be elected before others. Some tank commissions will be more active more rapidly than others
For example once the local money system has set up each of the +/- 200 tank commissions can take over the administration of the local money system at tank commission level. Once they have learned the system mechanism they can do this autonomously. The level of adaptation will be highly variable from one tank commission to another. The speed of introduction of the local money system depends on the independent initiative of the tank commissions. A sort of «organised chaos » is introduced, not to be confused with Proudhon’s definition in his «Du principe fédératif » from 1863. (Interested French-speaking students can get some basic information on Proudhon at the Proudhon-Free website.)
However, as with Proudhon, the freedom of individuals and voluntary groups to autonomously set up and organise themselves and freely engage with other individuals and groups with exclusion of exploitation and theft is fully respected.
Carefully read the 05.07 Statutes of the Cooperative for the on-going management of the project structures of the Model.
Article 4 provides “The goal of the Association is the on-going management of the structures, of which it will become sole owner, following their creation under the framework of the project. “
On one page describe how you would envisage the progressive transfer of new operational structures from the Cooperative for Project Execution to the Permanent Cooperative for the management of the project structures during the course of the execution of the integrated development project in your chosen area.
As a result of the rule on progressive transfer of newly created project structures from the Cooperative responsible for project execution to the Management Cooperative, the Execution Cooperative suffers «loss of blood ». It gradually «bleeds to death ». It transfers it blood to the Management Cooperative. This «loss of blood » has profound positive influence on project execution as it proceeds phases by phase, structure by structure.
On two pages explain the advantages of this procedure to the Minister for Rural Development of your country. Begin with an introduction (presentation of the problem). Follow that up with paragraphs on the progressive reduction of the number of structures remaining the responsibility of the Execution Cooperative and of the amount of the project budget that is left over, until the point of final discharge of EExecution Cooperation and its winding up. Finish your work with a conclusion in which you give an evaluation of the system..
Article 7 of the statutes of the Cooperative for the on-going management of the project structures provides :
“The association is made up of all the inhabitants, without exclusion , living in the project area who enjoy civil and moral rights, without distinction of sex, race, or political or religious convictions. “
Make a report of one page on the profound implications of the automatic application of all of the structures of an integrated development project to all of the inhabitants in the project area, without exception.
Article 47 of the statutes of the Cooperative for the on-going management of the project structures states :
«Real and personal property of the Association is the collective property of the Members of the Association. It is in principle inalienable. They are transferable only under circumstances expressly foreseen under these statutes in the interests of good management without risk to the cultural, social and economic integrity of the project area.
Transfer of property of the Association to foreign or foreign owned persons, companies or organisations is prohibited.”
Article 10 provides that it is up to the Central Committee to
individually on every decision connected with real property owned by the
-Deliberate individually on every purchase and/or investment and/or sale of personal property of the association for a value equal to or greater than [ (example) Euro 15.000]. ”
Make a one-page report on the profound implications of the concept inalienability of the structures of integrated development projects. Which changes, if any, would you bring to the proposed statutes? Why ?
