Reducing corruption can play a decisive role in increasing the efficiency of budget spending - Expert-Grup
According to the analytical center, several important steps are needed to fight corruption. First, reduce the chances of politicians with a low level of morality in coming to power. For this, according to experts, it is necessary to regulate the financing of political parties and exclude corrupt practices from the electoral process. Also, in order to fight corruption, it is necessary to increase the efficiency of the public sector by reforming it. Optimization of the budgetary sector should include the following elements: the introduction of clear rules for the use of public money by state institutions, the development and approval of performance-oriented budgets and the introduction of tools to allow consultations with citizens on the use of budgetary funds. Experts also consider it important to ensure wide access to budget expenditure data. In particular, information on public procurement (amounts paid, final beneficiaries) should be made public in open data formats. // 11.02.2019 - InfoMarket.
