International institutions, from the OECD to the European Commission, have highlighted a number of structural topics. One of that is the transparency of the budget of the local and regional self-government units  and the management of the local government units (municipalities, cities and counties). The following section discusses the transparency of local and regional budgets, followed by local public finances.
Transparency in the budget of local and regional self-government units means the presentation of complete, accurate, timely and understandable information on the budget of municipalities, cities or counties. It should be published in a format that allows us to identify possible trends that are supported or not supported by citizens and should indicate irregularities in the work of local or regional authorities. Management of publicly funded local units is used through local budgets.
