official government notice re: disengagement

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media
Adviser)
The Cabinet today (Sunday), 17.4.05, by a
majority vote, approved Prime
Minister Ariel Sharon's proposal that sets
special work procedures for all
matters regarding advancing the implementation of
the Disengagement Plan
(http://tinyurl.com/43l87). The goal of the
decision is to achieve maximum
efficiency and to hasten the work procedures
regarding both the evacuation
of communities in the Gaza Strip and northern
Samaria and the provision of
various alternative residence solutions.
The decision determines that a special
ministerial committee chaired by
Prime Minister Sharon, and with the participation
of Industry, Trade and
Employment Minister Ehud Olmert, Vice Premier
Shimon Peres, Justice Minister
Tzipi Livni, Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
Interior Minister Ophir
Pines-Paz, Construction and Housing Minister
Yitzhak Herzog, Agriculture
Minister Yisrael Katz and Environment Minister
Shalom Simhon will be
authorized to make decisions in all matters
regarding Government
preparations ahead of the implementation of the
Disengagement Plan in the
civil sphere, when the committee's decisions are
approved by the Cabinet.
The decision defines the ministries'
directors-general forum
(http://tinyurl.com/7vpmb), chaired by Prime
Minister's Office
director-General Ilan Cohen, as the body that
will coordinate and promote
the implementation of the Disengagement Plan in
the civil sphere. The
directors-general forum will consider the
feasibility of the establishment
of sites designated for community or urban
settlement for Gaza Strip and
northern Samaria evacuees, and will make
recommendations to the
aforementioned ministerial committee regarding
the implementation of the
Disengagement Plan.
According to the decision, all ministries
participating in the
implementation of the Disengagement Plan will
appoint a senior employee to
be responsible for the ministry's preparations
ahead of the implementation
of the Disengagement Plan, with the
representatives of the various
ministries working in full coordination.
The decision also defined that, in keeping with
the opinion of
Attorney-General Meni Mazuz, those instances in
which it would be necessary
and desirable to make use of the clauses
regarding exemption from public
tender in the public tender rules regarding
contacts requiring special
urgency in implementing the Disengagement Plan.
Thus, the time needed for
contacts between the Government and various
suppliers will be significantly
shortened.
The Israel Lands Administration Council will
define those cases in which
exemptions from public tender will be awarded
regarding land transactions
with Gaza Strip and northern Samaria residents.
These rules will enable the
immediate allocation of lands for the residents'
benefit.
