Description

Status quo or problem addressed by the commitment: This commitment seeks to raise the level of financial information disclosure by public institutions. It also corresponds with the requirements of the Jordan 2025 document in respect to broadening the scope of financial disclosure to include municipalities, universities, Aqaba Authority and state owned companies. Main objective: Increase the level of transparency and publication of financial statements and data. Brief description of commitment: Issue executive instructions by the Government to oblige governmental institutions to publish financial data, including the publication of aggregated governmental accounts. OGP challenge addressed by the commitment: Combat corruption, increase access to information and encourage financial reform. Relevance: This commitment intersects mainly with the access to information principle for the purposes of accountability and transparency in governmental procedures. Ambition: The Jordanian Government seeks to establish financial disclosure in its institutions as a general rule and not as an ad hoc, one-time event. The government seeks to nurture a culture that is based on regular financial disclosure of financial data and information in the public sector.
