Transparency International Georgia continues to explore the degree of transparency and accountability in state-owned enterprises.
On 24 October 2015, the Georgian Parliament adopted the new Law on Public Service. The entry into power of the law was set to 1 January 2017, however due to the current situation, it will be practically impossible for the law to come into power in two weeks. This will significantly damage the continuity and process of reform in the public service.
Transparency International Georgia (TI Georgia) analyzed asset declarations filed by Georgian public officials and identified instances where family members of these officials are employed in the same or related institutions. The majority of such cases were identified in local government bodies.
