Examples of amalgamations
Agencies A, B and C are being amalgamated into one. Agency A isn’t closing. Agencies B and C close and their functions are transferred to Agency A.
This is a combination of the closure of 2 agencies and the transfer of their functions to an existing agency.
Agencies D, E and F are being amalgamated into a new agency, however not all of their functions are going to the new agency.
A function of Agency D is being transferred to Agency Z and some functions of Agency E are being transferred to Agency Y.
This is a combination of the closure of 2 agencies and the transfer of their functions to multiple agencies.
Agencies M, N and O have multiple functions. Some of those functions are similar to each other.
A new agency is being created to take on those similar functions and they are being transferred to the new agency.
Agencies M, N and O will all continue to operate and carry out their other functions. This is treated as a transfer of functions to a new agency.
