"The Law on Transparency in Public Information and Services Administration
through Electronic Tools imposes the obligation to sent within 60 days all
the proper information referring to the sites developed by the local administration
institutions, in order to record it into the National Electronic System.
The role to be played by computer specialists in this initiative is proving
to be increasingly important. The systems they develop, maintain and secure
are an important contribution in the improvement of the populace-oriented
services, helping to simplifying the bureaucratic procedures and increasing
the information dissemination level", said Adriana Ticau, the IT Secretary
within the IT&C Ministry, during the regional e-administration seminary,
a part of the "ANIAP Caravan" initiative.
The IT Secretary has also drawn the attention on the fact that all state
institutions must be prepared to accept, starting on January 1st 2004,
the electronic card payment for local taxes and fees, also underlining
the need to accelerate the informatic systems' implementation process
in all city halls that have not yet introduced it. Adriana Ticau was impressed
with the degree of interest shown by the local businessmen in the county
of Iasi, in the IT&C area. As a result of the complete market liberalization,
27 notifications were received for the private provision of IT&C services
and networks in this county.
The "ANIAP Caravan" agenda also included other themes, such
as the main e-governance principles, the ways and the means for the wide
implementation of e-governance projects as well as identifying the implications
of the Transparence law.
The state secretary also visited the county of Galati, in order to analyze
the way the preparations for applying the law are conducted. The local
officials insisted during the past months on developing the administration
forms to be made available starting next year. The city hall already launched
its own site, www.primaria.galati.ro, and has some 140 PC-trained employees.
