Description

Trust, transparency and Just in Time FOI: Sustainable Governance and Openness in the digital age

Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner

Massive changes in public expectations for information, new tools and technologies, and loss of trust in traditional institutions demand a corresponding shift in information governance and accountability tools such as Freedom of Information. In her second year as Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham reflects on the critical link between information management, archives, and the UK’s decade old freedom of information regime. Is the regime fit for purpose for 21st century? What does sustainable information governance look like, beyond fads and flights of fancy? How can we re-engage the public with FOI? How can we build new practice frameworks? The Commissioner will outline her strategic approach –innovative partnerships and plans to build trust and transparency in public bodies. In her plan: ‘FOI Beyond Requests’, the ICO seeks to assist public agencies to perform better and tackle more systemic transparency issues and areas that make the most difference to the public.
