DID YOU KNOW THAT . . .


On January 28, 2016, Commissioner Karen A. Rose issued Investigation Report IR-16-001, regarding the information handling practices of five public bodies. The report arises from a complaint that questioned the information handling practices of the five public bodies when processing requests for access to information. The Complainant alleged that the public bodies had breached his privacy, and that the alleged breaches subjected him and his requests for access to information to an arbitrary process.

The Commissioner found that the public bodies contravened Part II of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The Commissioner noted that, due to changes in centralizing the Access and Privacy Services Office, the finding applies only to those public bodies that have maintained their own autonomous access process. As the Department of Justice and Public Safety, on its own initiative, had stopped collecting the information from request to access information forms, an order was unnecessary.
