Urs Pauli was) from 2008 until his dismissal in 2017, actually, Director of the municipal Department for waste disposal and Recycling Zurich (ERZ. He called himself but rather the CEO and was reluctant to control. This self-understanding had taught him his predecessor, Gottfried Neuhold, which was brought in 1997 from the private sector to the then rebuff essence of Zurich (EEZ), to be merged later ORE .
Because municipal departments are working with tax dollars, they are controlled by the government, the Parliament and the voting public. This control attempted to bypass Pauli creative as a lawyer, Tomas Poledna shows in his report, published today, to its administrative investigation of ORE meticulously.
entered in the accounts For the construction of the logistics centre in the case of urban waste plant in Hagen wood-to-energy calculated ORE to the required credit 2009 report is in writing, and "obviously in a hurry", in Poledna -. A year later, the voting public approved a Objektredit of 72.1 million Swiss francs. As Pauli noted that the construction is significantly more expensive, he instructed his people to capture the additional expenditure on the ongoing maintenance, instead of requiring the local Council to increase the loan.

in Addition, said ORE under the direction of Pauli to companies, you should offer a certain amount of Work under the title of another project, so the cost is not attributed to the construction of the new logistics center. So Pauli had to apply for any additional credit. He wanted to prevent a delay in the project, justified by the Pauli later Act.
rules for tenders bypassed
a municipal Department Awards a contract, so this needs to be a certain amount of money put out to public tender. This ORE is treated under Pauli to the fact that there are certain orders are not split in sub-jobs, which exceeded in each case the amount of money.
Larger orders can be awarded in addition, hands-free, if only a certain company is out of the question, because it is, for example, specializes in something. This passage Pauli gross, and put quickly. During the construction of the logistics center in Hagen-wood, he took account of an architect who at the time of survey, Poledna said, although he had already worked once for the ORE, but not a singular Know-how developed. Compared to an external project Manager, the architect, said that the logistics center was "two to three Shoe sizes too big," as Poledna.
another Trick of ORE was, that they founded their own companies or took over, and the tasks of the state handed over – without that, the contracts were put out to tender. The most famous example of this is the Rolf Bossard AG, which is in cardboard and paper recycling. The city had taken over the company that previously worked together, in 2005, because she was in financial difficulties and the city's money owed. So the ORE could not do in the Rolf Bossard AG, only personnel at lower wages than would be usual in the city. It was not the only company that carried the ORE.
Why he did so, said Pauli in the NZZ, after it was blown: "you could always use a bit of the local councils over ... you understand: The political processes are extremely time-consuming, until you have a decision, you are half-mad." (Tages-Anzeiger)
