A workshop on “Development of an information system (IS) for implementation of the Law on Free Access to Information”(SPI) was held in the premises of the EU Info Centre. The workshop was part of a project initiated by the Agency for the Protection of Personal Data, which is funded by the European Union Delegation in Podgorica. The project has been developing an information system that monitors the area of free access to information. Employees of the Agency presented to the workshop participants, government officials, a web application that will be used in the future.

“Today, we are holding this presentation for the current authorities so that they can become familiar with the web application through which they must sent us data, which we in the Agency are required to introduce into our information system, for a variety of statistical reports, among which is the obligation to report to the Assembly on the situation in the field of free access to information,” explained Nenad Djurkovic, the head of the registry department and IS.

The new system will facilitate functioning between state bodies and the Agency. Previous practice involved all the requirements related to the implementation of the Law on Free Access to Information being sent to a single address in written form, and from that an Agency employee entered the information into the system.

Employees of those state bodies where, by virtue of the nature of their work, most of the requirements related to the application of the SPI apply are already familiar with the new application. These bodies include: the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Finance, the Tax Administration, the Parliament of Montenegro and the Pension Fund.
