TISL writes to PM; says opportunity to take global leadership in financial transparency

Transparency International Sri Lanka has written to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa highlighting an opportunity for Sri Lanka to take global leadership in financial transparency during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In its letter sent on 22 May, TISL had made three key recommendations.

The first being,

“…establish an online platform providing all information on grants/donations received with timely updates on spending,” the second, “maintain an e-procurement platform to publish all government tender notices and related documents, technical evaluations, decisions etc., providing timely updates during the procurement process and implementation,” and the third, “issue a circular reinforcing the need for strict record management practices in all public institutions in compliance with provisions of the RTI Act and regulations promulgated by the RTI Commission.”
