History - Organization history of Southern Region Branch

Established on December 14, 1960, in Kaohsiung City, the Southern Region Branch of National Property Administration was known as the Southern Region Office, National Property Administration, Ministry of Finance prior to a governmental restructuring. Areas such as Kaohsiung City, former Kaohsiung County, Tainan City, former Tainan County, Chiayi County, Pingtung County and Penghu County came under its management, and a branch office was set up in Tainan and Chiayi, respectively. Under the Southern Region Office and branch offices, county specialist offices were established in smaller cities and counties in the same areas. Later, due to the decreased amount of business in some smaller cities and counties, the operation of all county specialist offices was terminated in August 1966, and the business previously handled by these offices was transferred to the Southern Region Office and branch offices. In 1989, an information team was organized in the form of a task force in compliance with the initiative in computerizing the branch’s work. In September 1992 the Civil Service Ethics Office was set up in accordance with the “Act Governing the Establishment of the Government Employee Ethics Units and Officers.”

On April 14, 1997, the Southern Region Office, considered as a first-class office, established the Receiving and Custody Section, Survey Section, Disposal Section, Management Section and Development and Utilization Section under its management, in accordance with the “Organic Act of Branch Offices of National Property Administration, Ministry of Finance” promulgated by the President. These sections were in charge of receiving and keeping in custody, surveying, disposing, managing, developing and utilizing national property, respectively. The Information Management Office, Secretariat Office, Accounting Office, Personnel Office and Civil Service Ethics Office were also set up for the computerization, general affairs, accounting, personnel matters and civil service ethics, respectively, relevant to national property business. Meanwhile, the Tainan Branch Office and Chiayi Branch Office were subordinate to the Southern Region Office to deal with the national property business in Tainan and Chiayi. In 2000 the Penghu Counter was established to cope with the national property business in Penghu County. To better serve the public and save the people time spent traveling, the establishment of Penghu Branch Office and Pingtung Branch Office was approved in accordance with Letter Yuan-Shou-Yan-Zong-Zi-Di No. 0960005599 issued by the Executive Yuan on March 16, 2007, and both branch offices started their operation on March 4 and May 2, 2008, respectively.

For the sake of the Organizational Reform of the Executive Yuan, the Southern Region Office of the bureau was restructured as the “Southern Region Branch, National Property Administration, Ministry of Finance” on January 1, 2013. Under its management were established six sections: the Receiving and Custody Section, Survey and Assessment Section, Disposal Section, Management Section, Leasing Section and Development and Utilization Section; they are in charge of receiving and keeping in custody, surveying, assessing, disposing, managing, leasing, developing and utilizing national property, respectively. In the meantime four offices: Secretariat Office, Accounting and Statistics Office, Personnel Office and Civil Service Ethics Office, were set up for the general affairs, accounting and statistics, personnel matters and civil service ethics, respectively, relevant to national property business. Also, the four existing branch offices were restructured as the Tainan Branch Office, Chiayi Branch Office, Pingtung Branch Office and Penghu Branch Office subordinate to the Southern Region Branch, to deal with the national property business in these four areas.
