To welcome in 2012, ODAC will be developing a page to assist information officers in both the public and private sector to fulfil their obligations under the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000. Over the next few weeks will be growing a body of resources which we hope will assist information officers. This will include a simple checklist or listing of the various responsibilities of private and public information officers in terms of the Act. We will also use this page to discuss examples of best practice.
We encourage Information Officers with further requests or comments on what types of information would be of assistance to contact ODAC, or to leave comments below. ODAC will also assist information officers with preparing PAIA manuals, though a fee may be charged for those from private bodies.
