Increase budget transparency
Commitment Start and End Date
September 1, 2018 – August 31, 2020
Lead implementing agency/actor Ministry of Finance of Kyrgyz Republic
What is the public problem that the commitment will address? Despite the progress achieved in raising the budget transparency index from 8 points in 2008 to 55 points in 2017, the International Budget Partnership notes that in Kyrgyzstan, state authorities provide citizens with limited budget information, and there are limited opportunities for public to participate in the budgeting process. This leads to inefficient spending of the budget funds and increases shadow economy volumes.
What is the commitment? As part of this commitment, it is planned to develop a module on the Open Budget portal of the Ministry of Finance for collection and publication of the government budget reporting data and online mechanism for consultation and feedback from the interested parties, ensuring the open access to government responses to the citizens’ budget proposals and inquiries.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Providing citizens with more complete budget information and introducing a mechanism to identify and take into account public opinion on budget development process and execution will increase the efficiency of public spending and citizens' confidence in the state.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Transparency: Providing citizens with the access to more detailed information of the budget documents.
Citizen participation: Strengthening interaction of the civil society and government bodies in the budget process.
Additional information This commitment is consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals (16.6.2.b Budget Transparency Index)
