Improving Local Government transparency: a consultation

27 Oct

Not everyone is as enthusiastic about “consultation” as the government as we all know from bitter experience what “consultation” can mean.  The government wants the views of organisations on how transparency in local government can be improved.  The consultation document is here and you have until 20 December 2012 to make your views known.

The document’s remit includes:  adding clarity, transparent specifications when services and contracts are handed out, transparency on how grants are dealt with, on policies, performance, external audits and key inspections, the location of public land and building assets and something they call ” democratic data”.
