The Need for Greater Transparency (1)

Some time ago I posted this entry – Khalid promises FOI – Freedom of Information Act.

As a follow up… I have found a link to a sample (or example) of a FOI (Freedom of Information) Act. This FOI is from the Australia’s Attorney General Department.

Just click here Freedom of Information.

The good thing about this site is that it is clear (and transparent) about how the FOI can be used. Check it out for your-self…

The FOI is good as it can promote greater transparency on the side of the government. With the FOI, the public can have more information on what the govt is doing and more importantly with those information the performance of the government can be better assessed and evaluated.

More on this (the FOI) in the future….
