image of Open Government in Tunisia

The Open Government Review of Tunisia is the first of its kind analysing a country’s open government policies and practices and their institutional and legal frameworks for implementation against OECD instruments. The analysis focuses on how public sector’s openness, transparency and accountability can be enhanced and therefore promote trust in government, in assessing : coherence and coordination of open government policies; citizens’ participation in policymaking; public financial management; integrity and anti-corruption initiatives; and the role of Information and Communication Technologies and Social Media. It also includes case studies of open government and local development. By bringing together a multitude of OECD instruments and expertise in different areas of public governance, the Review provides Tunisian policymakers, public sector officials and civil society activists with practical indications on how to improve and successfully implement their national open government agenda. In addition, the Review contains a list of recommendations that have been included in Tunisia’s first Action Plan for the Open Government Partnership.

Budget transparency in Tunisia

This chapter focuses on why transparent public financial management, especially on budget related issues, is a crucial parameter for Open Government and how it can support the development of a climate of trust for citizens and businesses. Tunisia’s financial transparency is assessed in comparison with OECD principles and good practices. An analysis of Tunisia budget reports and budget preparation cycle shows elements in which Tunisia conforms to international standards, where recent progress in implementing policies on financial transparency was made, and which challenges still remain. The role that ICTs can play for fiscal transparency is then illustrated. The chapter ends with a set of recommendations in the areas of budget reporting, disclosure and accounting standards, control and accountability as well as reforms management.
