Description

ACCOUNTABILITY PORTALS GUARANTEEING GREATER ACCESS TO PUBLIC INFORMATION
Starting date and end of the commitment (SEPTEMBER 1, 2018- August 31, 2020)
Institution or actor responsible for the implementation: Institute of Access to Public Information
What is the problem that the commitment addresses?
Legal regulations still exist that hinder in some way the effective application of the right of access to public information, limited opening of information on issues of trusts, CSOs and public resource management and the little availability of the legislation enforced in the country, in a single center of information. Likewise reducing the cases of denial of application without justified cause, and to achieve greater involvement of children and adolescents in issues of transparency and access to public information.
Which is the commitment? Opening of interactive portals to promote transparency and accountability to guarantee the citizen access to information on the topics referring to trusts held in the country with public funds, CSOs and management of public resources, as well as the current legislation organized and in open data format. Citizen empowerment of children and youth, with at least 100 teachers trained in the LTAIP and their right to access information as a human right.
¿How will it contribute to solve the problem: Provide the citizens with the technical and legal mechanisms, as well as the instances necessary to facilitate access to information, contributes in a substantial manner to the Government assuring its obligation to inform, render accounts and make public information available to its citizens of all its management.
Sectors of empowered citizenship of the processes and rights that grants the transparency and access to information law to obtain the information they require from the state. Alert mechanism for competent institutions to improve the response processes to requests for information of the citizenship.
¿Why is it relevant to the values of OGP
Transparency; these commitments will help to comply with the law of access to public information based on international standards, of which Honduras is a subscriber and achieve greater transparency in the public management, bringing it more closer to the public, who has the opportunity to influence or make decisions.
Citizen participation; One of the benefits of access to information is the citizen participation, because knowing and analyzing the information that will be loaded in these portals, will allow to evaluate the performance of the government through the accountability that each authority must present
of the public resources that they receive and use.
Accountability; the surrender of accounts by the institutions, generates greater opening to information and in the end greater involvement of the citizens demanding answers, proposing and achieving better benefits for their communities.
Technological innovation; designs of digital platforms that facilitate loading, and timely and effective information management by institutions to favor the citizenship.
Additional Information
For the process of reforming the classification law, for its approval by legal competence the Sovereing National Congress intervenes.
Development of practical mechanisms to generate alerts when there is no response to requests for information. Statistical information administered by the IAIP. 
Subscription of agreements with the Secretary of Education and the academy to achieve the greatest number of teachers, to train our
children and youth.
Strategic alliances with key government institutions and CSOs for the
creation of information portals and surrender of accounts.
1. Strengthen the platform http://sielho.iaip.gob.hn in order to monitor, compile and statistical process data on requests for information that were rejected by public institutions.
