What is Red Tape - Power point presentation From Mindanao University of Science and Technology

  1. 1. What is Red Tape? Red tape is the term used to describe the often lengthy and paperwork laden task of getting anything done through a governmental agency. How red tape process? Red tape process through corruption and it delays the work of one party and demand extra money if the person not pay then they delay the work. And at a time person is agree to pay the extra amount that they charge illegal.
  2. 2. Phrase Origins: Where did the phrase "red tape" originate? The expression comes from the practice of binding legal documents in red tape, a tradition that can be dated in Britain back to at least 16th century Tudor times (as evidenced by contemporary paintings and surviving historical documents). In the USA, the OED records a reference in a work of 1765 on the Laws of Maryland to a 1696 map bound in red tape. According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red...), official Vatican records and those of American Civil War veterans are also bound in a similar fashion. In the UK, the practice survives today, albeit that pink tape has replaced red for barristers' briefs and white tape is used for official government papers.
  3. 3. Red tape is excessive regulation or rigid conformity to formal rules that is considered redundant orbureaucratic and hinders or prevents action or decision-making. It is usually applied togovernments, corporations, and other large organizations. One definition is the "collection or sequence of forms and procedures required to gain bureaucratic approval for something, especially when oppressively complex and time-consuming".[1] Another definition is the "bureaucratic practice of hair splitting or foot dragging, blamed by its practitioners on the system that forces them to follow prescribed procedures to the letter".[2] Red tape generally includes filling out paperwork, obtaining licenses, having multiple people or committees approve a decision and various low-level rules that make conducting one's affairs slower, more difficult, or both. Red tape can also include "filing and certification requirements, reporting, investigation, inspection and enforcement practices, and procedures".[3]
