Responsibility for Seknas FITRA is in the hands of the Secretary-General. When taking strategic decisions, the Secretary-General takes advice from leadership meetings attended by the head of the Politics of State Budgeting Division, the Director of the Budget Resource Center and the head of the Regional Network Development Division.
The Resource Center is supported by a Research and Development Unit and a Database & Information Unit which are responsible for development of new ideas and dissemination of FITRA’s products and services. In terms of formal structure, neither the Politics of State Budgeting Division nor the Regional Network Development Division has work units to support them. To do their work, therefore, they tend to rely on the services of volunteers or trainees.
Staff movements impact directly on FITRA’s human resources and the organization’s sustainability. Between 2008 and 2011 FITRA experienced quite significant increases in staff numbers and had relative low levels of staff turnover. Total staff rose from 12 in 2008 to 20 in 2011.
