The Commissioner’s Service has used the most diverse sources of information for Catalogue compilation, because not all of the authorities have replied to the Commissioner’s request to deliver data necessary for this Catalogues’ compilation. In that way, besides regulations, for the information contained in the Catalogue, reports and other authorities’ documents have been used, their own and other Internet presentations. Data on legal entities financed from the budget have been secured from the Treasury Administration of the Ministry of Finance for the needs of this Catalogue.
Having in mind the above quoted reasons, there is a possibility that the Catalogue didn’t cover all entities, which are, in the sense of this law, listed in the category of public authorities. There is also a possibility that an insignificant number of contained titles transferred from the Treasury Administration, most often under title Funds and the like on the local level, do not have legal subjectivity, and that they do not represent public authorities, but a budget category important for handling funds. Therefore the Catalogue does not have constitutive, but practical, informational character.
The Catalogue in this phase contains data for 12.238 subjects, pending that due to the above quoted reasons, that number can be subject to change.
Due to the special status of AP Kosovo and Metohija, authorities from the territory of this Province have been processed both on the Republic and on the local level.
Due to everything stated, as well as due to a large scope of databases contained in the Catalogue, the Commissioner’s Service reserves the right to correct possible mistakes. For those reasons, any suggestion regarding the contents of the Catalogue shall be valuable, and can be delivered to the Commissioner’s Service by e-mail to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org Ova adresa el.pošte zaštićena je od spam napada, treba omogućiti JavaSkript da biste je videli , or by regular mail to the postal address: Belgrade, Nemanjina 22-26 or to the Service Seat in Svetozara Markovića Street 42.
