Context and objectives

Currently, proposals for funding CSO projects in Ukraine can be submitted in either hard copy or electronically, [54] which complicates applications by CSOs based outside the capital, Kyiv, and their processing by selection panels. [55] An interviewed expert from the partner project E-Government for Accountability and Participation (EGAP) also noted a lack of trust in competitions due to a lack of transparency. [56] Without a centralized database of all applications and decisions, it is impossible to effectively monitor the results of funding contests, especially across authorities and over time. To address these problems, the government aims to introduce a platform for e-calls for proposals for financial support to CSOs, conducting consultations, and submitting a government resolution to do so. Each of these activities has verifiable performance indicators. Online submission of applications, publishing of selection procedures, and consultations make this commitment relevant to the OGP values of access to information, technology and innovation, and civic participation.

This commitment could help simplify the mechanism for submitting proposals and could enhance transparency of competitions for public funding of CSOs. [57] Overall, the commitment represents a minor but positive step toward improved transparency in public funding of civil society projects.

Next steps

During implementation, the IRM researcher recommends ensuring maximum transparency of funding contests. The IRM researcher also recommends introducing accountability mechanisms, such as procedures for an appeal committee and publishing its decisions online.
