(TAP) - Three teams won Hack 4 transparency held Sunday in Hammamet.

The winners, out of fifteen finalist teams, came forward with innovative ideas to enhance the transparency of the Audit Court's work and public financial control.

The first winning project consists in a web application that presents the Audit Court's reports in a simple language and facilitates the digitisation of it archives.

The second is a web application that allows the Audit Court to digitise the last step of the audit process, namely monitoring the implementation of recommendations by audited public bodies.

A web and mobile application that allows regional treasurers and local taxpayers to lodge a challenge online against the decisions of local authorities is at the heart of the third project. "This is the first hackathon organised by a public body," said First President of the Audit Court Nejib Ktari. It is aimed to put youths' innovation and creativity in the service of the control of public money.

An incubation programme to offer assistance to winning teams, finalists and non-finalists in the development of their projects will be set up following this hackaton, said Project Coordinator at the World Bank Mehdi El Batti.

This event was launched in January 2019 in collaboration with the World Bank and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ). It aims to tap into technologies to shed further light on the Audit Court. The first hackatons officially started last March 8 in Sfax, Sousse, Gafsa, Jendouba and Tunis. Around 241 candidates were selected out of a total of 629.
