Proactive Transparency in Institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina: good practices

Despite the generally poor results when it comes to proactive transparency of institutions at the state level, research analysis has shown that there are still some institutions that have established good practices in this field.

Themes: Transparency and Open Government


The availability of information on the official web sites of public institutions is on the very low level and thein information on budget and salaries of employees are at least available, according to a survey conducted by Analitika in May 2016, which consisted of analysis of the web pages of 68 institutions at the state level.

However, there are several institutions that are above average when it comes to applying the principle and standards of proactive disclosure of information, which is recorded in the second round of research conducted in September 2016. The survey included 10 the most advanced institutions at the state level, on the basis of the research results from May 2016. Some institutions have developed some good practices, such as the Public Administration Reform Coordinator’s Office - the only institution that by September 2016 published the salaries of employees, the statement on conducted consultations, as well as all the information from the category of organizational information and information about free access to information.

The results of the research are available at this link.
