Administrative Obfuscation

ALM town hall 02The Andalusian Board for Transparency & Data Protection has called upon the Almuñécar Town Hall to furnish information on work posts and salaries.

The reason that this watchdog body has stepped in is because a member of the public had requested this same information from the Town Hall and had received no reply, so he approached this organisation, whose task it is to make sure that public administrations operate in a transparent manner; i.e., there should be no bureaucratic obfuscation.

Administrations have one month, maximum to respond to a request for information, either by supplying it or explaining their non-conformity.

The Town Hall, for instance, should show on its webpage its “catalogue of work posts and personnel employed and their salaries (RPT), which is not the case in Almuñécar.

The response by the Town Hall to the person who had requested the above information was met with the response: “consult out webpage,” more or less, whereas the law obliges the administration to provide a direct link to the requested information and not just a generic link.
