Local public authorities keep under seven locks the activity of municipal enterprises and public patrimony

State-owned enterprises are the neural point of local public authorities. For the most part, their work is protected by the eyes of the world. There is a low level of openness of the authorities towards the results of the activity of the municipal enterprises and the majority companies owned by the administrative-territorial unit, IDIS Viitorul expert Viorel Pîrvan finds in the show "15 minutes of economic realism".

There are 6 local administrations and 2 district administrations publishing on the web all the activity reports of municipal enterprises, including their annual financial analyzes.

The expert finds difficulties of the local public authorities and the management of the public patrimony. Over the course of three years, there is a regression in the management of the public patrimony. "Local and regional public authorities must make an effort to publish on the website the announcements regarding the sale/ lease/lease of the property belonging to the administrative-territorial unit and the results of these public auctions," says Viorel Pîrvan.

"Despite the difficulties faced by local public administrations (lack of staff, low wages, lack of financial resources, lack of real local autonomy and decentralization), during the three years of monitoring, we notice their evolution in terms of opening up to citizens. The general average of transparency increased by 4.95 percentage points for the local public administrations of level I and 7.34 percentage points for the local public administrations of level II ", believes Viorel Pîrvan.

By category, the expert argues that in terms of access to information, local and district governments have begun to make more use of web pages to inform citizens of public interest information.

The 2016 monitoring shows that all announcements about public meetings were communicated on the web portal by 16 localities and 1 rayon, and in 2018-28 local administrations and 14 district administrations use the web page to publish these ads.

In conclusion, Viorel Pîrvan states that the decision-making process has increased the number of localities that recorded video/audio meetings of the local and rayon council, which they stored in the web archive (the site of the site and/or the youtube.com portal). In 2016, 6 localities and 1 rayon have been identified that have published these video / audio recordings on the web page, and in 2018 there are 20 localities and 3 districts. The best examples in this regard are the city of Ialoveni, the city of Straseni and the Falesti district.

The show is made by IDIS "Viitorul" in partnership with Radio Free Europe.
