“Is the 49 billion Jamboree the same as the 9 trillion won PyeongChang Olympics?”

It has been confirmed that from the beginning of the preparation for the Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree, there have been criticisms that the organizing committee’s labor costs were “excessive”. At the time, even though there were no specific criteria for judging the tasks to be performed by the Organizing Committee Secretariat, the government set relatively high wages, which passed the National Assembly as it was. According to the ‘2019

Ministry of Gender Equality and Family Budget Review Report’ prepared by the senior expert member of the Gender Equality and Family Committee of the National Assembly in November 2018 , the government at the time submitted 608 million won to the National Assembly as a Jamboree support budget. It was in the early stages of preparation, before a huge government budget was invested. Including 216 million won in labor costs, 441 million won was allocated for operating expenses of the organizing committee and 167 million won for publicity. The labor cost was six months’ worth of salaries and allowances for eight people who would work at the organizing committee’s secretariat. Regarding this, the report said, “There are no specific details on what kind of work the organizing committee secretariat will consist of and what qualifications the staff will need먹튀검증.” It seems to have been organized closer to the upper limit,” he pointed out. For example, the government said that it would pay an annual salary of 60 million won (30 million won for 6 months) to those equivalent to the 6th grade who will work in the organizing committee. It is also very different from the customary practice of determining the annual salary at the midpoint considering the lower limit (35,079,000 won). Of course, it does not exceed the annual salary cap, but it is a relatively high wage in a state where the standard is unclear.

At the time, the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family said that the PyeongChang Olympic Organizing Committee and the Gwangju Summer Universiade Organizing Committee had cases in which the annual salary grade for general tenure officials was applied, and that private experts with expertise in interpretation, translation, and marketing had to be hired, and that a high annual salary should be presented. insisted.

However, the report pointed out, “It seems excessive to set the Jamboree Organizing Committee with a total project cost of 49.1 billion won (at the time) and a capacity of about 50,000 people based on the Pyeongchang Olympics with a total project cost of 9 trillion won and a scale of 1 million spectators.” In particular, it is reported that the Ministry of Gender Equality made such a request even though it was not able to identify the specific budget and number of people in relation to the organizing committee of the Gwangju Summer Universiade.

In the end, the report suggested, “It seems necessary to recalculate the size of the organizing committee’s staff and the composition of labor costs by identifying the comparison targets at the level of similar competitions.” However, as confirmed by Dong-A Ilbo, there was no further discussion on the Jamboree support budget, including personnel costs, and it passed the plenary session of the National Assembly at the end of 2018 as a government proposal.
