Description

In order to improve the publicity of contracts concluded for the utilisation of public property
and with the use of public funds, Hungary undertakes to provide for the following even
through legislative amendments, if necessary:
a) the examinations of independent and governmental state organs authorised to
carry out compliance checks should always extend to compliance with
disclosure obligations;
b) experience gained concerning the implementation of the Public Procurement
Act as well the rules of national and community budgetary financial assistance
should be reviewed, with special respect to compliance with statutory
provisions on the freedom of electronic information and paying special
attention to the form and content of the eventual further increase of publicity;
c) the utilisation of local government property and procurements should be
discussed in open meetings, except for meetings convened for the evaluation of
tender procedure results where the bidder or applicant excluded the disclosure
of part of its application because it qualifies as business secret which relates to
its own activities but does not relate to substantial elements of the contract to
be concluded, or if an open meeting would breach secrecy of a business
company owned by the local government;
d) public motions by local government bodies should be disclosed on the local
government's website after sending out the invitations and together with such
invitations.
