RZ13 - The Ailing BHAID Act

WHEREAS Not much has been done with BHAID since it was created in the 48th Cosa, and

WHEREAS If it were streamlined significantly it might be able to work, or at least replace TalossAID (which is confusingly operated out of the Ministry of the Interior despite not being defined by law anywhere) as Talossa's premiere humanitarian aid organization


THEREFORE Lex.D.2.6.6, which currently reads:


2.6.6 The Bureau for Humanitarian Aid and International Development (The Bureau) shall serve as the hub for the Kingdom of Talossa's support for disaster and poverty relief and other forms of humanitarian assistance, emergency response and the promotion of efforts towards socioeconomic development. 2.6.6.1 The Bureau shall operate under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Bureau shall be administered by an Administrator to be appointed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs with the approval of the Seneschal. 2.6.6.1.1 The Bureau shall be funded by contributions from individuals, nonprofit organizations and where deemed appropriate by the Ziu, legislative appropriations. 2.6.6.1.2 With respect to legislative appropriations its funding should be determined as a component of an approved Budget covering expected expenditures for an entire government term, with additional expenditures approved by the Ziu. For the purposes of funding decisions, additional expenditures includes disbursements composed of monies derived from private individual and organizational contributions. 2.6.6.2 All funding decisions should follow an internal approval process consisting of an affirmative review by the Bureau’s Board of Governors to include the Administrator, the Minister of Foreign Affairs or a delegated official, two representatives of the Ziu (one from the Government and one from the Opposition) and a representative of the King. 2.6.6.2.1 If the internally approved funding decision allocates funds not included in current legislative appropriations then the proposal will be submitted as a standalone bill for consideration by the Ziu. 2.6.6.3 To ensure transparency and accountability, the Administrator or a delegated official shall be responsible for the development and maintenance of an agency website providing the total amount of funds at the Agency's disposal, a history of all agency funding decisions and information on the donation/appropriation process. (48RZ15)
