The proposal for mandatory publication of contracts on the Internet sent legislators to the second reading


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - House proposal that public institutions and parastatal companies such as CEZ publish invoices and contracts mandatory on the Internet, dostalv Friday from the House permission to proceed to second reading. Lawmakers sent the draft Constitutional Legal Committee and the Committee for Public Administration and Regional Development.

Under the change, which would legislate disclosure of documents in the new register of contracts maintained by the government, had signed more than fifty members from across the political spectrum. Unpublished contract modifications would not be valid. "This proposal is neither the coalition nor the opposition is simply necessary," he said on Friday at the promoter Jan Farský (TOP 09).

Cabinet of Prime Minister Petr Necas (ODS) had a number of objections to the proposal, but generally expressed a wish to text passed to the second reading. The complaints summarized Deputy Minister Aleš Radl (ODS)."We agree that it is necessary to ensure that the public has access to information on contracts concluded, that their conclusion must be transparent. Government has a number of comments, for example, that it is a significant interference with contractual rights, so it should work out a broader discussion. defined not enough that the contract should be made public. Changes to the Commercial Code would be confusing. Neither quantified impact on the budgets of state or government. Constitutional Legal Committee will incorporate those criticisms, "mentioned.

Public institutions would have to disclose everything that gives them an obligation to the law on free access to information. After the publication of the documents are in force. Contracts that would have appeared on the Internet within three months after their closure, losing absolutely force.

"The contract, which was concluded in order to eliminate the consequences of emergencies immediately threatening life, health, property or the environment, it is effective without publication," mentioned explanatory memorandum to the material. Moreover, companies or departments that contract not to publish, threatened to five million fine.

Finance Ministry expressed opposition to the proposal. MEPs according to him, has not made an adequate number of contracts that would have found themselves in the registry or the impact on the national and other budgets. The Ministry of Justice was again considered that the condition of mandatory disclosure agreements would destroy the Czech legal certainty. "The content of some contracts between the State and third parties may be published in one place, and this problem would not be solved generally binding regulation, but a government resolution," said resort Minister Pavel Blazek (ODS).The intention of the Ministry of Interior appealed, but rather would have seen under the baton of government instead of parliamentary initiatives.

Positively to adjust to the actions of the government health minister expressed Leos Heger (TOP 09). "Our ministry supports it. I think that publishing contracts as a very effective anti-corruption measures matter and I would be in favor, to assert itself. Though there are some objections from various colleagues that relate more to technical legal matters," he said.

Lawmakers were inspired by neighboring Slovakia, where the establishment of a register of contracts worth approximately 650 thousand. "Given the fact that in the Czech case, the requirements of the country in proportion to the size and scope of the registry of published documents higher expected costs in the order of millions of crowns," they wrote in the explanatory memorandum.The Slovak savings reportedly reach up to the fifth volume of public procurement.

The issue of costs is expressed as deputy Jaroslav Krupka (ODS). "The costs associated with the central register of contracts may be considerable. Concur with the comments of the government, but I understand that there is a general will go to second reading material. Already we have put a lot of money in IT, so I think it would be good to invent new processes. therefore take paths that have already been implemented as a system of data boxes, "he told his colleagues on Friday.
