reification
Explanation:
It is quite an abstract concept, though I think that in this wiki article it's explained quite well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reification_(fallacy)

En aquest cas, crec que en català i en anglès seria el mateix:

reificar
v. tr.
Transformar (una idea, una qualitat, una funció) en una cosa, concebre-la per analogia a l’estructura de les coses.

reification
the conversion of an abstract concept into something concrete; a viewing of the abstract as concrete.

Espero que t'ajudi una mica, sembla un extracte una mica enrevessat ;)

You could also use "objectification" if it pleases you.

agree  psicutrinius: Hmmm. What about it being a typo for "verificació"?. You can always count on "funcionaris" using a vocabulary as "enrevessat" as possible and more, but this one would be the champion...
