During the meeting, representatives of civic organizations agreed:

1. To establish a Coordinating Council in order to develop policy changes on access to public information, including establishing new draft of a relevant Bill;

2. To create a methodology for monitoring open data on offsets of local councils.

3. To apply crowdsourcing method in order to check the usage of public funds by local councils.
