Slovak local governments administer more than € 3.5 billion each year. 50 per cent of Slovaks live in 100 largest municipalities. To see how open and transparent these municipalities are towards their tax payers, Transparency International Slovakia (TIS) conducted the Open Local Government 2012 study. During November and December 2012 TIS evaluated information available on local websites, replies provided by municipalities through Freedom of Information requests, as well as anti-corruption measures already in force and created the ranking of the most and least open municipalities in Slovakia.
