The Functional Structure is based on five line units and one Staff unit, to which tasks are assigned that allow identifying its function and responsibilities
The line functions, which group homogeneous activities, are led by Directors with specialized skills typical of the Structures they oversee. Other units (areas) that are responsible for the operational performance of assigned activities depend on these line functions.
