I feel that American is very good at putting everything online, even with a huge set of data. There is an amazing nation-wide system of energy compliance check which contains lots of detailed requirements of all states.
It is also interesting to know that here, the contractors have to pay for inspection. Thus, the inspectors will do their best to be paid instead of approving everything no matter how the quality is just because they are bribed. The process status, the inspectors’ name, the fee… are online as well.
It is really beneficial for citizen to have access to those kind of information. Once it is online and transparent to everyone, no way for corruption !!! That’s what we are striving for in Vietnam.
