The solution identified by the community was to open the local government data, to ensure transparency and optimize the operation of the local public authorities by using ICT and by involving ordinary people (including from diaspora) in the decision-making process.

The Iordanovca Local Council approved the plan of ensuring transparency in the local administrative process a.... Thus a new gateway appeared on the “map of information searchers” – www.iordanovca.md. INFONET Alliance backed the community’s effort and donated a computer to the Iordanovca village mayoralty to stock and archive local administrative documents, thus ensuring everybody’s access to them.
