In the study, Alems scored 36 out of a possible 100 points. Its performance is considered “poor” in the ITGP (Transparency and Public Governance Index).

The survey analyzes 84 criteria distributed in 8 dimensions. All evaluate transparency and public governance. They are: Legal Frameworks, Platforms, Administration and Governance, Financial and Budget Transparency, Digital Transformation, Communication, Participation and Open Data.

The House of Laws of Mato Grosso do Sul resulted in a low score in Administrative Transparency, as it does not disclose information considered basic for social control and transparency of expenses by society. The study also indicated that there is a lack of information regarding public revenues, public expenditures and bids.

Alems positioned itself through a note. Check it out below:

“The legislature is in constant effort to improve accountability to the population, which is why it appointed a working commission with the scope of expanding and expanding the mechanisms of transparency, still respecting the provisions of the recent General Data Protection Law” .
