  1. 1. TRASPAR-ENZA Monitors your Public Administration Who we are A group of citizens that: Keeps an eye on the transparence and accessibility of the public administrations Wants to give a tangible and effective contribution to the transparency process.
  2. 2. TRASPAR-ENZA Monitors your Public Administration THE GOALS OF THE GROUP • Spread the theme of transparency of P.A. websites among people who are not aware of the subject • Organize participate evaluations of the P.A. websites • Solicit the administrations, that are the target of the participated evaluation, to: • Take note of the notification that we send at the end of the civic analysis • Produce the modifications needed to guarantee transparency • Exchange information, updates and suggestions about the implementation of the transparency laws
  3. 3. TRASPAR-ENZA Monitors your Public Administration WHERE WE ARE • The Group was born as a blog, on the network, started thanks to Formez and ForumPA pa-su-facebook#comment-24074 • The Group was then extended and devoloped in facebook
  4. 4. TRASPAR-ENZA Monitors your Public Administration TRANSPARENCY AS A CURE FOR CORRUPTION • Public Administration is, by definition, PUBLIC • P.A. manages public services and spends public money • Documents produced by PA are public and must be made available to everyone • Corruption and squandering are costly for the community • Transparency is the cure for corruption • Institutional websites of PA must be transparent and contain all useful information for the citizens, by making available both public data and services
  5. 5.

  6. 6. Benefits for Public Administration • Without transparency of the documents: • Collective control is not possible • So, participation can’t exist • Participation is the basis of administrative democracy • P.A. interacts with the citizens through notifications, suggestions and complaints • P.A. collaborates with the citizens in order to improve services • Transparency • facilitates the internal organizatonal wellbeing of the employees • Reduces conflict • is a valid solution against mobbing
  7. 7. THE METHODOLOGY: PARTICIPATION The methodology is participation 1) We launch a poll on facebook: “What website would you like to analyze?” 2) We collect the participations and choose the site that in that moment is the most interesting 3) We open a specific event in the section of the group dedicated to events The participation increase as soon as the event is opened - integration: citizens, compass of transparency and public administration
  8. 8. Intregration between…. Citizens The Compass of Transparency Public Administrations
  9. 9. Who? Citiizens The Compass of Transparency Administration
  10. 10. The protagonists: the citizens Citizen volunteers The citizens are the users of public services and thus the best evaluators Not only experts : any average citizen can make significant contributions and suggestions
  11. 11. Joint Transparency: Anyone can join from North to South -the principle is of joint trasparency -public administration belongs to all of us - responsible spending in the South is an advantage for the North as well -the contribution of citizens living far from the chosen administration avoids conditioning due to local interests typical of small realities which in turn limits participation
  12. 12. The Compass of Transparency orientates us Simplifies civic control Informs citizens on rules and regulations concerning transparency
  13. 13. An important instrument: : The Compass of Trasparency The Compass validates our work through a standardized system made available by the governement The validation creates an objective and an autoritative element on which to base our evaluation
  14. 14. After opening the event on facebook ●Check single indicators ●Examine regional legislation ●Verify accessibility ●Put together proposals , ideas, and contributions which make up the final report
  15. 15. The first web site evaluated was of the City of Licata: the Compass indicated 4 out of 43 – the citizens gave a seriously insufficient evaluation
  16. 16. Compass 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  17. 17. We check the structure of the site and its contents through the various emoticons of the compass The Compass helps us by simplifying our actions. It allows us to verify if the structure of the site conforms to regulations, and if it contains information and services. It recalls the legal references and the page which contains data and services in a simplified way.
  18. 18. For example , let us examine the transparency regulations concerning the Sicilian region. LEGGE 5 aprile 2011, n. 5. Disposizioni per la trasparenza, la semplificazione, l’efficienza,l’informatizzazione della pubblica amministrazione …......e Art. 12 Trasparenza e pubblicità degli atti Comma 3 Tutti gli atti della pubblica amministrazione sono pubblici ed assumono valore legale dal momento del loro inserimento nei siti telematici degli enti, a tal fine opportunamente pubblicizzati.
  19. 19. The citizens make the evaluation more effective with their contributions and their suggestions. I would like a tree structure where the trunk is transparency, the branches are the minimum content and the fruits are the various departments. The seeds are the documents. (Calogero C.) Observation taken from “Sicily event”
  20. 20. We would like a Glossary Many terms or abbreviations used in the language of public administration are not comprehensible to the average citizen. Bureaucratic terminology such as the abbreviations used for legislation for example D.P.Reg. or others for many user citizens may mean nothing if there isn't anyone to explain them. One citizen suggests the problem could be solved by the creation of a glossary. (Maurizio G.) (observation taken form “Sicily event”)
  21. 21. Attention: the publishing of documents does not always mean transparency A document can be publishd but difficolt to find. In order to be transparent ..... the viewing of documents must be made easy .
  22. 22. Accessibility assessment - 1 L'accessibilità, as defined by Italian laws and in particular by L. 4/2004 and by the Italian e-Governement Code (CAD, Codice dell'Amministrazione Digitale) is a fundamental requirement for trasparency , since it makes up the essential, constitutionally guaranteed foundation: that is, allowing anyone –personal conditions and physical state notwithstanding –equal access to the services provided and to the information published, in the public interest (articolo 3 Italian Constitution, mentioned by art. 1, L.4/2004) The accessibility assessment was performed according to the general criteria defined by Law n. 4/2004 and by its corollary regulations, according to the Official Guidelines for Governement Web Sites, version 2011, and according to other legal documents provided by the Public Function Office (Dipartimento della Funzione Pubblica)
  23. 23. EVALUATION OF ACCESSIBILITY 2 The accessibility of the Sicilian Region website was evaluated by making a distinction between infrastructure accessibility and content accessibility. By infrastructure accessibility we mean interface accessibility of services provided or of relative functional automatisms presented on internet and usually realized using formal language which makes use of markers. (HTML, XHTML etc.) By content accessibility we mean the ability to access documents made public through the infrastructure as previously specified; documents which in conformity with art. 8 commas 3 and 4 of CAD, the guedelines require to be drawnup in the ISO 32000-1:2008 format. (a particular PDF version) Taken from the evaluation of the Sicilian Region website
  24. 24. EVALUATION OF ACCESSIBILITY 3 The result of the accessibility evaluation of the Sicilian Region website was disappointing. Although infrastructure accessibility presented some anomalies, all in allthey were not serious, and can be quickly corrected using a limited amount of resources. On the other hand, the accessibility of public documents is seriously deficient since: ●None of the public documents are in the open and accessible format as prescribed by law 4/2004, of the CAD, by the prescribed provisions and by the guidelines; ●All lthe deliberations of the Counciil are totally inaccessible; ●The GURS is essentially inaccessible. Except for the fact that the sanctions for similar violations have recently been toughened up in the “decreto sviluppo 2.0”, since over 10% of the Italian special needs population lives in Sicily, the situation must be urgently addressed. (Piero Draghi)
  25. 25. The observations and the proposals are included in a final Report which, supplemented by the contributions of all, is then formally sent to the Administration, to Civit , to the Ispettorato Funzione Pubblica via email , fax, or certified registered mail

  28. 28. What happens during the evaluation ? The Administration is notified and when made aware of the non- compliance takes steps to intervene.
