Description

Short description Defining the guidelines for the implementation of civic access to government-held files and documents as well as making sure it is implemented by the different offices. All the activities will see the constant involvement of civil society organizations that are members of the Open Government Forum. General objective Guide administrations towards a proper implementation of the institution of civic access (Foia) as a tool to foster widespread forms of control over the pursuit of institutional tasks and the use of public money as well as promoting participation in public debate. Current situation Art. 6 of Legislative Decree 97/2016 modified art. 5 of Legislative Decree 33/2013 and introduced – for the first time – the right to civic access to data other than those that public administrations are obliged to publish in their websites. The new institution will become operational as of December 2016 and is meant to meet the need to provide citizens and administrations with operational guidelines to help them properly and effectively implement it. Since this is a recent piece of legislation, its implementation has to be monitored by administrations in order to be able to identify criticalities and potential improvements. Expected results This initiative is meant to ensure that the implementation of this new institution is not hindered by conservative administrative practices or interpretation difficulties on the restrictions to the right to civic access. Monitoring is intended to assess the impact of civic access and any uncertainty regarding its application. This can be possibly dealt with additional guidelines or, if necessary, new legislation.
