Open and Accountable

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 set out legislation designed to make public organisations and Governmental departments more open and accountable. It states that the following information should be made available to the general public:

  • how public organisations make decisions
  • the way they carry out their duties
  • how they spend public money.

The Freedom of Information Act came into force in January 2005.
