Description of the measure
47
Which public issue does the measure address? The measure responds to the issue of the outdated technical aspects of the
Croatian Parliament website, its relevant presentation of information of
interest to the general public, poor search mechanisms of the content, and
access to information in open code.
What does the measure include? The measure involves improving the website of the Croatian Parliament
through technical improvements and redesign, and the addition of an
electronic voting system with the aim of simplifying multiple searches,
filtering and sorting, as well as overall better access to the content on the
Croatian Parliament website.
How does the measure contribute to resolving the
public issue?
The measure will achieve the implementation of stable search mechanisms
and integrate the contents of the Parliament website, while details of voting
records by individual members of Parliament will be published on their
personal pages.
Building up the web system will include many other new functions for
searching plenary sessions of the Parliament, its members and working
bodies, by various criteria, with the aim of simplifying access to information,
filtering and sorting data, and downloading it in open format (for example,
searching members by surname, calling, party affiliation, electoral
constituency, term of office, ballot paper, members' clubs, gender,
qualifications, education, duties, etc.). For the purpose of improving access
to information on plenary sessions, the aim is to achieve swifter, more
integrated data searches with the option to download. In terms of working
bodies, improvements will include the ability to monitor the work of a
working body according to the calendar, searching its documents more
easily, and monitoring the history of its membership, etc.
Why is this measure relevant to the values of the
Open Government Partnership?
The measure is relevant to transparency, because it improves the quality of
information published on the Croatian Parliament website and access to it
in open format, and its reuse, among other things.
Furthermore, it encourages the strengthening of mechanisms to control the
exercise of public authority on the part of the public.
Additional information The totals costs of building up the web system and redesigning the website
are around HRK 200,000, while the updating of the electronic voting system
48
will be carried out separately, as part of internal development, and will
therefore require no extra funding.
The measure is in accordance with the e-Croatia 2020 Strategy.
