We are systematically working on the introduction and the research of the problems of the access to public information, the use of public funds, the work of local councils, the decision-making in them and the access of the citizens to participate in these processes. When working in these areas, we are cooperating with the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Office of the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Human Rights.
You may know us as the authors of the Law “On the Open Use of Public Funds” and the ideologists of e-data.gov.ua portal, the developers of interactive visualization system of local budgets “Open Budget”, the founders and leaders of the Coalition “Transparent Councils”, which deals with the implementation of anti-corruption laws locally and more.
Within five years we are engaged in monitoring the implementation of the Law on access to information and training the officials and activists of using it. We have developed and moderated the portal “Know To Act” through which the activists can send a complaint to the Office of the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Human Rights and find versatile information on access.
