    On Thursday, Chisinau City Hall and the Public Institution "Center for Information Technologies in Finance" signed an inter-institutional collaboration agreement on developing and improving the quality of information systems in the field of public finance and accounting within the municipal structural subdivisions.

    The document establishes the cooperation relations between the parties, in order to ensure the transparency and operationalization of the accounting and financial services of the structural subdivisions and economic entities subordinated to the City Hall.

    The basic objective of the collaboration between the parties refers to the promotion of digitalization in the operational processes, in order to improve the quality of the accessibility of the services and the transparency of the information of public interest.

    After signing the agreement, Ion Ceban the General Mayor mentioned that in the first stage activities will be planned for the municipal educational institutions. "Many things are happening in this sector where we should get involved, from each institution in particular to the centralization of data by sector, including at the central level," the mayor of the capital concluded.

    According to Ion Ceban, the final objective is for the information on public finances in Chisinau to be available to citizens and interested persons based on requests or online, on the information platforms of the City Hall.
