23 Sep: Căutăm coleg pentru analize pe bugete și bani publici

A venit momentul să ne lărgim echipa. Colega Elena caută omul ideal pe care să-l învețe tot ce știe pe bugete și bani publici Concret, căutăm un om care să ne ajute să creștem tot ce facem în cadrul proiectului CMTRFB, pe partea de analize, cercetări și documente. Desigur, nu ne limităm la acest proiect. Noi ne dorim să investim într-o relație pe termen lung, în care acest om pe care îl căutăm va putea să coordoneze întregul Centru. Candidatul ideal este acela care are deja ceva experiență, însă nu excludem oamenii mai la început de drum, dar care își asumă alături de noi un drum de învățare și specializare în acest domeniu.  Ce căsuțe trebuie să bifezi (să știi sau să fii dispus să înveți): Curiozitate pentru ce…

Credibilitatea Bugetară și Obiectivele de dezvoltare sustenabilă (1)

14 Sep: România: Credibilitatea Bugetară și Obiectivele de dezvoltare sustenabilă

  Obiectivele de dezvoltare sustenabilă (SDGs), adopatate de toți membrii Organizației Națiunilor Unite încă din 2015, au fost gândite ca o hartă către un viitor prosper, atât pentru oameni cât și pentru planetă. Printre ele se numără țeluri mărețe precum eradicarea sărăciei și a foametei, accesibilizarea energiei verzi sau egalitatea de gen; dar pentru a putea atinge aceste obiective, totul începe, cum ne-am obișnuit, cu alocarea unui buget. Până a ajunge la investițiile și cheltuirea de facto a banilor alocați pentru atingerea obiectivelor intermediare, credibilitatea bugetară este o provocare peste care trebuie să trecem. Putem defini credibilitatea bugetară ca o diferență între ce ne-am propus în bugetul de la începutul anului să facem, și ce am făcut de fapt până la final de an, cu cât diferența crește, credibilitatea…

09 Sep: Masă rotundă: cum putem asigura, prin lege, protecția avertizorilor de integritate

Având în vedere recentele evenimente pe subiectul avertizorilor de integritate (proiectul de modificare a legii a trecut rapid de Senat și a ajuns la Camera Deputaților, decizională) credem că este momentul pentru un dialog onest între societatea civilă și decidenți. Astfel, organizăm o masă rotundă la care accesul se va face exclusiv pe bază de invitație. Chiar dacă evenimentul va fi unul mai restrâns, vom face publice concluziile lui.

07 Sep: Workshop: Cum putem implementa Open Contracting în românia cu ajutorul mediului de afaceri

Open Contracting in Romania would mean a first step in the transparency and efficient structuring of data and information about public procurement. Throughout the 10 years of Funky's activity in public budgets, we have discovered and been reconfirmed that transparency in procurement is far from being the strong point of the authorities. We strongly believe that there is room for better, so on Tuesday, September 20, we invite you to a workshop on how we can understand, make transparent and simplify public contracts for the business environment.

01 Sep: Analysis: keeping an eye on Parliament, February – June 2022

Starting with the first parliamentary session last year, we launched this assessment of legislative activity that we called, simply, "Eyes on Parliament." As part of this project, we have so far released two other analyses, for the February-June 2021 session, respectively for the September-December 2021 session, and of course, the one you are reading now for the first session of 2022 – February-June. We have collected and analyzed the data on the activity of the parliamentarians so far and we present to you what the 466 parliamentarians managed to do, how the poles of power and the functions in the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate changed with a new political majority and how the elected officials succeeded to legislate extremely quickly on some subjects and still miss some already old promises. The previous parliamentary session was...

24 Aug: OPEN LETTER: WE WANT TRANSPARENCY OF THE WORK OF THE PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEES ON JUSTICE LAWS

Justice laws have been much debated in recent years, have brought hundreds of thousands of people to the streets and made us more attentive and rigorous in following their legislative course. Today, the package of Justice Laws has passed the Government and is heading to Parliament. Therefore, we ask the presidents of the two parliamentary chambers, Marcel Ciolacu - President of the Chamber of Deputies and Alina Gorghiu - Vice-President with powers of President of the Romanian Senate, that the works of the parliamentary committees be public, transparent and open to the participation of interested actors in the field. We believe that an independent judiciary is fundamental in a functioning democratic society and we ask the two Speakers of the Chambers to consider the demands of civil society related to the parliamentary legislative process of the Justice Acts. To: Ms. Alina Gorghiu, Vice President with...

13 Jul: Rule of law report 2022: independence of the judiciary and the press, plus real public consultation

The European Commission has just published its annual report on the state of the rule of law. The recommendations for Romania are things that we have been insisting on throughout the last year. Let's hope that the governors will be more open to listen to the recommendations if they come from the Commission. Here they are: let's make sure that the justice laws (yes, those broken by Dragnea & co in 2018) provide guarantees for the independence of the judiciary. Keywords: disciplinary measures against magistrates, special section, European standards, opinions of the Venice Commission. to regulate lobbying for parliamentarians. to solve the DNA's operational challenges, including the recruitment of prosecutors + closely monitoring the impact of the new system for investigating magistrates' corruption. strengthening the rules so as to ensure the independence of the public media, according to European standards. to ensure "real" public consultation before we…
