Websites of Abasha Mayor’s Office and Council fail to meet transparency standards
Transparency International Georgia presents its research concerning the prevailing practice of proactive disclosure of public information by municipalities. The study of Abasha Municipality produced the following results:
On 3 February 2016, Abasha Municipality Council passed a resolution defining the procedure of proactive disclosure of public information;
The resolution complies with the provisions of the Government Resolution No 219 which sets high standards of proactive disclosure of public information;
However, the information published on the websites of the Mayor’s Office and the Council (www.abasha.ge and www.abasha-sakrebulo.ge) does not correspond to the list of the types of information subject to proactive disclosure as prescribed by the resolution – only 30 percent of information is being disclosed fully and only 15 percent – partially;
The information about financing and expenses of municipal public institutions is being disclosed incompletely, there is no access to information about municipal procurement and privatization of municipal property and so on.

Transparency International Georgia calls on Abasha Mayor’s Office and Municipality Council to address the aforementioned issue in a timely manner, fulfill the obligations undertaken under the 3 February 2016 resolution and ensure that the information uploaded to the official website is complete.
