EU funding info on Internet

The government yesterday launched a web site listing all projects approved for Phare funding from 1998 to 2001, companies which received money and how much they got. The site will soon also give information on sub-contractors, tenders and will be hyper-linked to the on-line business register. The moves come in reaction to last year’s scandal over the alleged misuse of European Union pre-accession aid that Slovakia had been receiving through the Phare programme. Increasing transparency and the amount of information available to the public were seen to be key measures in preventing a similar scandal from occurring again.
