Transparent and participative institutional management is based on a culture of adherence to legality by public authorities in managing of resources, taking decisions and transparency, accountability and guaranteed options for the active participation of its citizenry.
Transparency is necessary in public management to ensure clarity and probity in the use and management of public funds and in decision-making. Access to information must thus be guaranteed through policies, mechanisms and strategies established in the systems of public administration.
Both are related to the democratic control that society exercises through opinion. Citizens must, therefore, access to information and different opinions in an environment of full respect to the right to access information and freedom of expression, particularly with respect to its social dimension.
