Access to Information Programme
Today, at a press conference in Sofia, the Access to Information Programme presented the results of its 2014 Audit on Institutional web sites in Bulgaria. The updated 2014 Active Transparency Rating was launched and the first Budget, Financial Transparency and Integrity of Municipalities Map was launched. Although AIP performs the audit since 2006, all results are available in English for the first time. 
On February 28, 2014 in Sofia, Access to Information Programme (AIP) held the annual meeting with the journalists of its country-wide coordinators' network. The meeting was opened by the coordinator of the network, Nikolay Ninov. The journalists outlined the current situation of the access to information in the country. They presented statistics of the requests filed to the municipalities and the regional structures of the executive power bodies; the attitude of the administration towards the requestors; characteristics of the issued refusals, access to information litigation of citizens, journalists and NGOs.
During 2013, a large number of lawsuits for access to information were brought with the AIP legal support. We are publishing an overview of several important access to information court cases that were successfully led with AIP’s legal team assistance. Information about ongoing and completed access to information cases is included in Bulgarian in AIP monthly FOI newsletter and is available in the special section of AIP web site.
