The Municipality of Alcalá de Henares, the Municipality of Torrelodones and the Municipality of Las Rozas are recognized with the Infoparticipa Seal by the Autonomous University of Barcelona, which has valued their quality in communication and transparency. Only 6 of the 179 municipalities evaluated in the Community of Madrid obtained this recognition.
The evaluations were carried out by the ComSET Research Group (Sound, Strategic Communication and Transparency) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), which this year presented the results of its 3rd edition last Friday, November 26, at the IV Conference on Transparency and Open Data from the Madrid City Council, where it was highlighted by the vice president of the capital that transparency is “a basic part of democracy, without transparency there is no democracy”
The Infoparticipa Seal constitutes a distinction for municipalities that comply with transparency and represents a great recognition granted by the academic environment to those awarded this seal. The results show, once again, that the size of the municipality or the amount of the budget does not matter to fulfill high levels of transparency. The desire to bring information closer to citizens is the real value of this commitment.
Our transparency portals include in their design the proposals for good practices of this and other methodologies. Additionally, our team of consultants monitors and assists all entities we advise in the assessments to which they are submitted, thus enhancing the levels of compliance and the chances of success.
