Data - Exporting Corruption 2020


Romania maintains a massive database of real estate data called eTerra. Publicly accessible and easily searchable, the system is important for real estate market transactions and for landowners to access agricultural funds. It also aids in the consolidation of farmland and helps Romanian farms to compete in the European Union. However, only about 12 percent of the "territorial administrative units" are registered in eTerra, leaving a majority of property owners at a disadvantage.

The National Agency for Cadastre and Land Registration is implementing a €313 million project to register properties in 793 "territorial administrative units". In light of Romania's problem of corruption in public procurement, the Agency is implementing an Integrity Pact in two out of three components of the procurement process to promote transparency, efficiency and accountability.
