Response by Waterford City and County Council
to the National Integrity Index 2018
published by Transparency International Ireland
Waterford City and County Council welcome the scorecard and see it as a good tool for measurement of transparency. We are disappointed with the score of 30%. As a matter of fact, independently of Transparency International Ireland we have put in place measures to improve how we operate. If audited today, we would score 53% which would bring us into the top 10 Local Authorities.
Transparency International Ireland now gives us a framework to improve our transparency year on year. Progress will be reviewed regularly. We would welcome a more iterative approach with Transparency Ireland in the future.
