Context and Objectives

In Open Budget Survey 2017, Ukraine scored 54 out of 100 possible points. The report highlighted that the Ukrainian government provides the public with limited budget information.[Note222: 'Open Budget Survey 2017: Ukraine,' International Budget Partnership, https://www.internationalbudget.org/open-budget-survey/results-by-country/country-info/?country=ua#transparency.] This problem is compounded by a significant gap in financial management between different levels of government, as well as between ministries.[Note223: Victor Taran (Eidos), interview by IRM researcher, 11 September 2017.] In some cases, financial flows are not properly accounted for and current data is in paper form. These practices amplify risks of misreporting and manipulation.[Note224: Oleksandr Shchelokov (E-data), interview by IRM researcher, 25 September 2017.]

This commitment envisions the development of the technical prerequisites to enable a planned, integrated information and analysis system called Transparent Budget, including the Budget for the Citizens subsystem.

The commitment lists clear technical deliverables. However, it does not describe how the envisioned tool will display budget information, what features it will have, and what new information it will offer. Both government and nongovernmental stakeholders think the new system has significant potential to improve the transparency of budgetary funds, which could allow public monitoring of state revenue.[Note225: Oleksandr Shchelokov (E-data), interview by IRM researcher, 25 September 2017.] From the government viewpoint, the tool could provide critical insight into the financing of state-owned companies, the Pension Fund, and the Social Insurance Fund.[Note226: 'The Public Council at the Ministry of Finance Has Unanimously Adopted the Concept of ‘Transparent Budget’ for Implementing the Next Stage of E-data.gov.ua Portal,' Civil Society and Authorities: Governmental Website, 16 December 2015, (link no longer accessible as of 25 April 2018) http://civic.kmu.gov.ua/consult_mvc_kmu/news/article/show/2828. ] Similarly, a stakeholder from Eidos states that this commitment portal could contribute to increased transparency of local budgets, enhance control, and thereby reduce expenses.[Note227: Victor Taran (Eidos), interview by IRM researcher, 11 September 2017.] However, as written, the commitment defines no specific results or objectives. Therefore, the commitment’s potential impact cannot be assessed as more than minor.

Completion

Progress remains limited due to challenges in allocating funds for IT development as well as recent staffing changes in the Ministry of Finance. [Note228: Oleksandr Shchelokov (E-data), interview by IRM researcher, 25 September 2017.] The technical specifications of the system have been defined and IT development is now in process, but the Cabinet of Ministers halted further software development until after 2018.[Note229: Oleksandr Shchelokov (E-data), interview by IRM researcher, 25 September 2017.] The project is expected to cost USD 200 million.[Note230: 'The Strategy of Reforming the Public Finances Management System for 2017–2020,' Unified Web-Portal of Executive Authorities of Ukraine, http://www.kmu.gov.ua/control/uk/cardnpd?docid=249797370.] The Ministry of Finance has included additional funds in its section of the draft state budget for 2018.[Note231: Oleksandr Shchelokov (E-data), interview by IRM researcher, 25 September 2017.]

Next Steps

The continued development of the Transparent Budget system is critical, as is the support of international donors. Vital for general budget transparency in Ukraine, this commitment has wide-reaching implications.

The commitment could be carried over to the next action. It would need clear descriptions of intended results for increasing availability of budget information and more details on the system’s tracking function. The commitment needs to clearly communicate what features the new tool will have, what information it will display. It should outline how the monitoring function will be enabled and how regularly it will be updated. The Ministry of Finance could consider designing the public monitoring tool in a way that is user friendly and that focuses on visualization and analysis. The design could be modeled after the well-known DoZorro module or the 007 system.[Note232: DoZorro, https://dozorro.org/.] DoZorro is used for online monitoring of public procurement, and the 007 system[Note233: .007, https://www.007.org.ua/.] monitors public spending.
