Legislative Decree no. 33 of 14 March 2013 reorganized the regulations governing publicity, transparency and information-disclosure obligations on the part of the Public Administration. Transparency, understood as “complete accessibility” to information on the organization and activity of the Public Administration, has the aim of favouring widespread control of the pursuit of institutional functions and contributing to an open Administration, at the service of citizens, guaranteeing constitutional principles of equality, impartiality, sound performance, responsibility, effectiveness and efficiency in the use of Public resources.
In particular, the disclosure of data belonging to the Public Administration is intent on stimulating citizens' participation in order to:
- guarantee awareness of the services rendered, their characteristics in terms of quantity and quality, as well as how they are supplied;
- prevent corruption and promote integrity;
- submit every phase of the performance management cycle to extensive control so as to improve the same.
The Treasury Department complies with the disclosure obligations provided in Legislative Decree no. 33 of 14 March 2013 by continually updating, within their area of responsibility, the “Transparency” section of the official website of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF). This ensures, on its own, compliance to legal obligations.
