3. The Philippine Public Transparency Reporting Project was built on the belief that the more ordinary citizens can understand and access information about public sector behavior and finances at national and local levels, the more we can monitor and ultimately participate in decisions on public spending and help improve accountability and reduce corruption: Was our assumption correct?
