13/11/2003, UK: PolicyMatter, the compliance software company, has today published a free guide to meeting the requirements of the upcoming Freedom of Information Act. With more than 75,000 public bodies gearing up for FOI, the guide is designed to help compliance managers better understand the implications of the Act, together with a more detailed look at the exemptions provided for under the new legislation.
The PolicyMatter Freedom of Information guide has been co-written by leading public sector law firm, Morgan Cole. According to Nathan Millard, a senior solicitor at Morgan Cole: “The FOI Act is a major consideration for all bodies discharging public services in the UK, but compliance requires both a thorough understanding of the Act at a senior level as well as an awareness of its implications among all public-facing employees.”
As such, a key focus of the PolicyMatter guide is helping those charged with compliance to find the most effective ways to communicate the requirements of the FOI Act to employees. The guide also highlights some of the potential IT Security issues raised by the new legislation, together with suggestions on how to address these.
The PolicyMatter Freedom of Information Act guide is available free of charge from www.policymatter.com/foi.
