As part of the Ombudsman review, it's now the public's turn to voice their dissatisfaction with the OIA process.
User experiences of the OIA
The Chief Ombudsman now wants to hear from users of the OIA, including members of the public, journalists, Members of Parliament and their staff, people working for interest groups, and academics. We also want to hear from current and former employees and contractors in government departments and agencies.
To do this we have created three different surveys to learn about your experiences and perceptions of how the OIA is working in practice. This will help us determine where improvements are most needed.
The only question now is can you find the time/ be bothered?
Apparently each survey takes between 20 and 45 minutes.
