Global report reveals poor transparency and accountability in government spending

The International Budget Partnership’s Open Budget Survey 2010 is the only independent, comparative, regular measure of budget transparency and accountability around the world. Produced every two years, the report reveals that 74 of the 94 countries assessed fail to meet basic standards of transparency and accountability with national budgets. This opens the door to abuse and inappropriate and inefficient use of public money according to the report. http://internationalbudget.org/what-we-do/open-budget-survey/
