I. OVERVIEW

Promoting the disclosure of government information is the inevitable requirement of improving the government’s ability of administration by law, safeguarding the people’s right to know, participation right and right of supervision, and building a harmonious socialist society; it is also a key part of establishing an administrative management system that features standard conduct, coordinated operation, justness & transparency, honesty and high efficiency. Xuhui District first conducted the disclosure of government information in May 2004, and now has 11 full-time employees and 72 part-time employees, 45 dedicated government information application acceptance points and 15 public reference rooms. By the end of 2013, the work of Xuhui District on disclosure of government information has operated normally, especially in inquiries, applications and corresponding answers on government information disclosure. In 2013, Xuhui District further implemented the requirements of the “Regulation” and the “Provisions”, fulfilled tasks specified in “Notice of Shanghai People’s Government General Office on Printing and Distributing Current Major Arrangements on the Disclosure of Government information” and generally relevant work in the following three aspects:

(I) Strengthening leadership, specifying requirements and elevating overall level

District Government attached great importance to the disclosure of government information, and executive meetings of our government conducted special research on further pushing forward the disclosure of financial information and audit information of Xuhui District and included the disclosure of government information in the 2013 list of administrative supervision items. We conducted special inspection on the implementation of government information disclosure, and supervised and inspected the disclosure of government information through our District’s electronic governance platform of government affairs disclosure and government service. We timely identifies problems existing in our work, actively pushed forward proactive disclosure, improved the service of disclosure upon application, and practically boosted our level of government information disclosure. All departments improved the leadership system and working mechanism of government information disclosure and detailed relevant facilitation plans in accordance with their respective work characteristics. For instance, District Finance Bureau proposed work arrangements on linked disclosure of budget and final accounts of all departments in our district, budget and final accounts of “the three public expenses” as well as some of central and municipal financial funds. District Planning and Land Resources Administration specially printed a set (i.e., four volumes) of operating materials on practices of information disclosure, including compilation of documents, typical cases, questions & answers and model text, which are provided as reference for practical operations of information disclosure personnel.

(II) Giving prominence to emphases, deepening content, and steadily expanding the scope of disclosure

Xuhui District further expanded and deepened the content of information disclosure. Firstly, we continually intensified financial disclosure and expanded disclosure scope. On the basis of disclosing departmental budgets, budget of departmental “three public expenses” and some of central and  municipal financial special funds in 2012, we disclosed final accounts of departments and final accounts of department-specific “three public expenses”, and expanded the scope of disclosure from relevant departments of District Government to People’s Congress, CPPCC and social organizations. Secondly, we deepened the disclosure of audit information. In addition to previous disclosure content, we accelerated the announcement of audits on budget implementation of government departments. In 2013, we added the announcement of audit results on budget implementation and other financial revenue and expenditure of 5 departments including District Price Bureau, former Population and Family Planning Commission, Xujiahui Sub-district Office, Cable TV Center and District Health Inspection Branch of Municipal Health Bureau, thus ensuring higher audit supervision and transparency. Thirdly, we continued to push forward the disclosure of information that arrests much social attention and is closely related to vital interest of general public. We timely released such information concerning kindergarten admission and primary and secondary schools’ entrance examinations and indemnificatory housing, standardized the disclosure of information concerning land and house expropriation and compensation schemes, and actively pushed forward proactive disclosure of such information as planning permission and environmental assessment of construction projects. We periodically disclosed food safety, work safety and other supervision and inspection information, and proactively disclosed “Emergency Response Plan of Xuhui District on Food Safety Accidents”.

(III) Consolidating the basics, standardizing the operation, and pushing forward the work continually and forcibly

According to the requirements of the “Regulation” and the “Provisions”, Xuhui District improved the system of organizing and promoting the disclosure of government information and put into practice related government information coordination and publication, confidentiality review and supervision guarantee measures. Firstly, an evaluation system of information disclosure work was established and improved. At the beginning of the year, District Government General Office worked with related member units of Joint Meeting on Information Disclosure of District Government to organize the evaluation of the 2012 information disclosure work of all administrative organs of Xuhui District, 12 district-level government department and 3 sub-districts (town) were named excellent, good units, and circulars of evaluation results were printed and distributed. Secondly, the work of institutionalizing information disclosure was strengthened. We further improved the working regulation on government information disclosure, formulated the “Administrative Provisions of Xuhui District on Government Information Disclosure Business Platform”, ensure unified, standardize, efficient use of government information disclosure business platform, and practically improved the level and efficiency of Xuhui District’s work on the disclosure of government information. Thirdly, confidentiality review of government information disclosure was strictly carried out and the mechanism of determining disclosure attributes and sources was put into practice. We worked with District Secrecy Administration Bureau to issue “Notice on Strictly Implementing the Work of Confidentiality Review of Government Information Disclosure”, which reiterates the establishment and improvement of the mechanism of confidentiality review of government information disclosure by relevant organs and requires that confidentiality review shall be conducted to determine the attribute of official documents disclosure during the formation of  official document type of government information. Fourthly, we organized the update of “Guidance of Xuhui District on the Disclosure of Government Information” and “List of Locations of Public Reference Rooms for Government Information in Xuhui District”, guided, supervised and urged all administrative organs to timely publicize their annual reports on the disclosure of government information and further do a good job in basic work  like monthly statistics and filing of catalogues of official document type of information according to the requirement of the “Regulation” and the “Provisions”.

In 2014, Xuhui District will intensify proactive disclosure of government information, continually deepen and advance the disclosure of financial information, expand the disclosure of audit results and audit rectification, and actively conduct such work as release of information of high public concern, including house expropriation and compensation and indemnificatory housing in Xuhui District.

Implementation Opinions on Further Promoting the Development of Prefabricated Building in Xuhui District

 

In order to implement the Scientific Outlook on Development, carry out the requirement of innovation-driven, transformational development, practically transform Xuhui District’s urban construction model and building industry development pattern, and construct resource-saving, environment-friendly district, according to the requirement of documents including “Notice of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government General Office on Forwarding Several Opinions of Five Departments including Shanghai Urban Construction and Communications Commission on Further Promoting the Development of Prefabricated Building in Shanghai” (HuFuBan (2013) No.52), the implementation opinions of Xuhui District on further promoting the development of prefabricated building is presented below:

 

I. SCOPE OF APPLICATION

The term “prefabricated building” in the present opinions refers to residential building and public building like commercial and office building that adopt prefabricated parts or components and are assembled at construction site. The scope of promotion of prefabricated building in other public buildings may be gradually expanded according to the requirement.

Xuhui District will encourage the adoption of the system of assembled monolithic concrete structure in prefabricated housing, and the prefabricated assembly rate of housing units (i.e., proportion of prefabricated parts in housing structures like wall body, beam column, floor slab, staircase, balcony) shall not be smaller than 15%(the figure for housing projects within Outer Ring shall not be below 25%). The area of prefabricated wall or composite wall shall be at least 50% of outer wall and preferably adopt prefabricated sandwiched thermal insulating wall.

For prefabricated commercial and office buildings with concrete structure in Xuhui District, the prefabricated assembly rate of their building units shall not be below the prefabricated assembly rate of prefabricated housing, and main concrete parts including outer wall, beam column and floor slab shall preferably adopt the prefabrication method.
