Proposal on Transparency in the Public Sector for Online PPI GA 29th March

AR
Andrew Reitemeyer Public Seen by 175

May the General Assembly of the Pirate Parties International decide the
following declaration:

The public sector, including private entities carrying out work on
behalf of a public body, must be transparent. Pirates believe that it is
a fundamental right of citizens to inspect, without the need for any
specific justification, all contracts or financial benefits related to
the delivery of public sector or government projects and services.

Pirates advocate for general and comprehensive legislation to protect
persons who expose issues that are in the public interest, such as cases
of corruption, insider trading, or ethics or human rights violations
(“whistle-blowers”).

including private entities carrying out work on
behalf of a public body, must be transparent

So private entities that are performing work for public entities should be completely transparent, or the work itself that is performed by the private entities for the public entities should be transparent?

Because I think that private entities that perform work for both public and private entities should only have to be transparent about the work for the public entities. Complete transparency between two private entities could be damaging to commercialisation.

I am not happy with PPI taking stands on policy even if we agree.
