Full clarity is access to understanding the facts.
“There is clearly a wide gulf between having access to the facts themselves and having access to an understanding of the facts.”
I found a recent example of this in the City Council’s Online Meeting Packet. An agenda item for the City Council is to review and approve changes to the City’s Flex Spending Plan and Claims Administration Agreement. A link was provided to the actual Claims Administration Agreement and the City’s Flex Spending Plan. What I didn’t find was any explanation of the changes, and whether any cost savings might result from the changes. So, transparency is accomplished, but there is a complete absence of clarity.
