Description

THEME: Improve procedures governing public calls for applications for the allocation of public funds at all levels of government, including evaluation issues and available remedies. COMMITMENT 12: Amend the Regulation on Funds to Support Programmes or Missing Amount of Funds for Programmes of Public Interest implemented by Associations; Status quo or problem addressed by the commitment: The existing legal order in the Republic of Serbia does not impose a duty to publish reports on the achieved results of programmes and projects supported from the national budget of the Republic of Serbia. Main objective: Provision of information to the general public about the results of programmes and projects financed from the national budget of the Republic of Serbia will enable better insight into the importance of cooperation between public administration bodies and CSOs in the implementation of public policy measures and reinforce citizens’ trust in the work of CSOs. Brief description of commitment (140-character limit): Amendments to the Regulation on Funds to Support Programmes or Missing Amount of Funds for Programmes of Public Interest implemented by Associations will introduce a duty to publish a report on the results achieved by supported CSO programmes and projects and will define the content and form of the Tender Cycle Evaluation Report. OGP challenge addressed by the commitment: More efficient management of public resources; Relevance: Provision of information to the general public about the projects and programmes of civil society organisations financed from the national budget of the Republic of Serbia and the results they achieved will promote and develop integrity and accountability in the work of state institutions and build citizens’ trust in state institutions and civil society organisations. Ambition: This measure would impose a duty to publish the results achieved by the CSO programmes and projects supported from the national budget, which would give the public detailed access to information about the purpose of budget spending and the results achieved through such spending, which in turn would contribute to promotion of the core OGP values (fiscal transparency, openness and accountability of public administration).
