About

We do not criticize or analyze. We demonstrate the statistical picture of the freedom of information sector in Armenia, according to you requests.

The goal of the project is to ensure public control on the Government transparency through Freedom of Information and to produce that system's statistical picture in the freedom of information sector through constant monitoring. Here, you can

  • See the entire statistical picture of activities in the freedom of information sector, as well as both positive and negative results per annum - all related to state and local self-government bodies, state budget sponsored organizations, as well as the organizations with public functions.
  • Create your information request case. Complete the appropriate application form, insert copies of required documents, and your case will become part of the freedom of information database.
  • Familiarize yourself with separate pages related to activities of each unit in the freedom of information sector. Your case will be displayed on the page of the specific supervision unit you searched for: a statistical picture will be produced based on given answers related to your request addressed to that unit.
  • Discuss and Comment on the results, as seen on the website.
  • Share Cases and statistical data with the public through social networks.

The project has been implemented by "Freedom of Information Center" NGO within the framework of the "Freedom of Information Implementation Survey in Armenia" project and co-financed by the OSCE Yerevan office and USAID Armenia. The goal of the project is to monitor and assess the implementation practice of the Armenian “Freedom of Information Law” by the government system as well as by organizations with public functions, as well as to enhance public control on the government transparency. In the framework of this project it was conducted a complete monitoring on FOI in Armenia with the following objectives:

  • to assess how effectively state and private organizations respond to citizen’s information requests and applications;
  • to grade institutions based on the speed and completeness of disclosure;
  • to assess implementation practice of electronic FOI in the government system;
  • to grade level of proactive disclosure by institutions and to assess the content of the published information (what info is being released (especially any surprising releases), what is being withheld (beyond the standard withholdings).
     

A total of 250 requests were filed to 10 central gov. departments, 10 regional government bodies, 10 municipalities, 10 village administrations, and 10 private organizations (each institution received by 5 requests). The requests were submitted by a total of 10 individuals (each requestor submitted 25 requests). These all requests and their results are uploaded in this website.
