ensure that the law is achieving the aims endorsed by the Government,
the implementation of the Act should be supported by an effective
ongoing monitoring and evaluation system. This will enable implementation
efforts to be assessed, reviewed and improved.
monitoring information collected should be proactively disclosed
by the government on its website, at a minimum, the information
should be collated by each public body at the end of each month
and sent to the Government Department responsible for overall implementation
of the Act.
accordance with best practice, at the end of the year, all of the
statistics collected should be collated into an Annual RTI Report.
Almost every RTI law requires some form of Annual Report to be produced
and tabled in Parliament and/or put on government websites, made
available in hard copy and disseminated as widely as possible.
