Consell de Formentera meets 90% of international transparency indicators

The Formentera Office of Transparency is pleased to report that currently the island administration complies with ninety percent of Transparency International's eighty indicators. TI brings together civil sector, the private sector and governments, and is the only non-governmental organisation dedicated to combating corruption.

The Consell de Formentera maintains a transparency web portal that can also be accessed via the institutional website, www.conselldeformentera.cat. Depending on type, TI's indicators are updated weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually according to the organism's established criteria. This information relates to government actions, agreements, plenary sessions, e-minutes, government contracts, economic and financial data, town planning data, legislation, councillors' personal information, etc. A newly designed web form allows islanders to request public information in person at the Citizen Information Office (OAC) and online across the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC). The process does not require identification by digital certificate, per transparency legislation.


Moreover, the Consell has asked the administrators of the Mapa inforparticipa website to correct details reported in a 16 January press release indicating that in a study of Balearic municipalities, Formentera had received a score of zero out of one hundred in transparency. The document did not report on the rest of the island councils.

In their reply, the portal's representatives stated that "the [Consell de Formentera] website is listed as not evaluated; not as scoring zero". Formentera's administration was "simply not evaluated, which is why it appears on the Mapa Infoparticipa graphic in grey. It was not evaluated because when the Balearic Islands were assessed it was insufficiently clear to us whether the www.conselldeformentera.cat website belonged to the City or Island Council [sic]". They added that Mapa Infoparticipa did not evaluate governments' transparency portals as the first option.

Mapa Infoparticipa have offered their advisory services to the Consell de Formentera, but the island administration oversees transparency work with its own resources and does not hire external companies for this purpose.
