Subsidy etc. review committee (review of subsidy)

Consider the actual circumstances of subsidy administration

The subsidy is money with administrative purpose that is provided from the national government to the local government, from the local government (prefecture) to the municipality (municipality), from the municipality or the government to the private sector.
By effectively utilizing subsidies, it will be an effective means for regional revitalization and industry promotion. On the other hand, however, the following problems have been pointed out from the past.
  • Application procedure for benefits is complicated, accompanied by enormous administrative processing
  • There are a lot of judgment criteria by the benefit provider varying, and the judgment ground is uncertain
  • Specific effects due to benefits are hard to see
  • Benefits are vested, while it is difficult to review

To subsidy based on objective judgment

Niseko Town, a subsidy review committee was set up by eight members, mainly from open call for participants, from 2001. This committee scrutinized the contents of each subsidy in order to review and effectively operate the subsidy, and made specific examinations for the review.
