null Statement on the report on expanding the coverage of Act on the Openness of Government Activities

CSC supports more openness in public administration and therefore also the expansion of the coverage of the law. CSC already operates with high openness towards the owner but is prepared to increase the openness further.

CSC highlights that the law must allow sufficient protection of trade secrets and documents that include delicate information about security issues.

CSC has received document requests especially about procurement documents. Increased openness will require more resources to answer these requests and therefore CSC hopes that this need for additional resources will be taken into account.
