Russian Cities' Open Data: Audit Results – 2016

The Infometer has audited open data of the largest Russian cities, those populated over 100,000 (except the federal-level cities). Earlier, we audited open data for federal and regional government bodies. The results show that, at federal level, there is uneven but active work with open data: leading bodies increase the number and improve the quality of their datasets, the road map is approved and partially implemented. In regions, the state of affairs is worse. How do city administrations deal with a similar task?

Russian Cities' Official Websites: Audit Results – 2016

The Infometer continues to study informational openness of the largest Russian cities. After the 2015 pilot study we have once more audited official websites of the municipalities. Open data are processed mostly by software developers while the wide public gets indirect advantages from their publication; at the same time, cities' official websites are seen by almost everyone. Therefore, requirements to volumes and availability of the information published at the websites are more strict.

Governmental Openness at Federal Executive Level in Russia: Legislative Requirements Not Fully Observed

In October-December 2014, the Infometer project experts audited openness level for federal executive government bodies. Within the study, three key indicators of informational openness were assessed: the bodies' official websites; open data placement; public councils (a public council under a federal executive government body is a consultative body including civil society representatives).

Informational Openness of Russian Judicial Websites: General Jurisdiction Courts

The Infometer project experts have completed one more public audit of openness of information on Russian general jurisdiction courts' activities, focusing on online publication of templates for documents used for filing applications to courts. Online interaction between the Infometer experts and officials from various courts appears to be especially active and efficient: 7 regional courts and 132 first-instance level courts have reached 100% of informational openness in accordance with the current audit requirements.

Openness Costs

How efficiently is budget money spent on launch and maintenance of official governmental websites? We submitted requests to federal executive, top regional executive, and regional legislative government bodies, asking them to provide amounts of budget costs for launch and maintenance of their official websites. Having analyzed the replies received, we make conclusions whether there is correlations between cost and quality of the websites in question.
