Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Article 13 of the new Law on the Right to Access Information articulates the need to designate of points of contacts responsible for receiving, reviewing and providing the requested information, and assisting the applicants in this regard. For the time being, government bodies and public institutions do not have contact points in charge of providing information in line with the Law on the Right of Access to Information. The lack of points of contact would hinder the proper application of the law and the enjoyment of the right to access to information, as requests for information will remain unanswered.
What is the commitment?
This commitment consists of: Defining the criteria for designating the information officers and their substitutes based on the human resources and size of each government body Developing a training plan for the persons in charge of delivering information Developing course units for the training Drafting an official letter issued by the Head of Government calling on government bodies and public institutions to designate the information officers and their substitutes. Conducting a training programme in collaboration with civil society for the designated information officers. The implementation of this commitment will: Guarantee that requests for information are managed appropriately Ensure that government bodies react positively to applicants’ request for information Ensure the effectiveness of rules to exercise the right to access information
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The designation and training of information officers and their substitutes will help government bodies and public institutions interact with applicants’ request for information through the identification of a recognised, well-trained contact point. The latter will respond to the applications, thus guaranteeing the effectiveness of the Law on the Right to Access Information.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
Designing the information officers, tasked with receiving, reviewing and delivering the requested information, will ensure the effectiveness of the law to access information, thus having a positive impact on citizens’ daily lives. The information officers shall check the eligibility of requests and deliver only publicly accessible information. If necessary, they shall assist applicants in preparing their requests. This will better help the public access the requested information
