Transparency refers to the extent to which citizens can meaningfully view and understand how government operates. It refers to an environment in which the objectives of policy, its legal, institutional, and economic framework, policy decisions and their rationale, data and information related to monetary and financial policies, and the terms of agencies' accountability, are provided to the public in a comprehensible, accessible, and timely manner.


Transparency is

[t]he circumstances wherein the parties to a communication and unauthorized individuals (i.e., individuals who are not involved in implementing and maintaining the intercept) are unaware of on-going electronic surveillance.[1]
