The ministries and other bodies of the central public administration, companies, agencies and perfect's offices will have to post online in a standardised form 25 sets of information, reads a memorandum adopted at a meeting of the Government on Wednesday, the Ministry for Public Consultations and Civic Dialogue reports.
Thus, at a minimum, the documents provided for in Law 544/ 2001 (hours for audiences, job vacancies, budget) as well as other documents such as: budget implementation; information about the management staff; the wage right of persons in the public apparatus and their benefits; centralised public procurement information to show the implementation of projects worth in excess of 5,000 euros each and related contracts; standardised forms to be filled by individuals and legal persons with mentions of the deadline for filling them in.
"Undertaking to contribute to the practice of open, participatory governance while holding all the levels of the Government up to the same standards, the Ministry for Public Consultations and Civic Dialogue (MCPDC) is achieving today, three months after the inauguration of the incumbent government and the establishment from scratch of the ministry, one of the major objectives pledged under the Sectorial Measure Plan," says Minister for Public Consultations and Civic Dialogue Violeta Alexandru.
The memorandum, called "Increasing transparency and standardising the posting of information of public interest" was initiated by MCPDC and the Chancellery of the Prime Minister.
The provisions therein will have to be implemented two weeks of their publication in the Official Journal. MCPDC will come up with a guidebook for the specialists involved. Together with the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, the ministry will also follow the developments in the implementation of the memorandum.
"Simultaneously, Minister Violeta Alexandru and Deputy Prime Minister Vasile Dincu had consultations with local public administration associations — the National Union of Romania's Counties (UNCJR), the Association of Romania's Municipalities (AMR), the Association of Romania's Towns and Cities (AOR) and the Association of Romania's Communes (ACOR) — for the associations to take over as good practice the memorandum at the level of the territorial-administrative units of Romania," says MCPDC.
