The Cayman Islands Freedom of Information Implementation Plan is now available in draft form for public comment.

This plan will guide the Cayman Islands Government’s activities as it prepares to implement the new Freedom of Information (FOI) Law, and FOI Coordinator Carole Excell urges all residents to be part of the process by reading the document and submitting their comments and suggestions.

“The implementation plan for the FOI Law will guide the actions of government beyond January 2009, which is why the FOI Unit is actively seeking public input to the process,” she said. January 2009 is the date set for the law to come into effect.

To view a copy, residents may download a copy of the draft Implementation Plan from or visit their nearest public library.
“The FOI Unit wants everyone to have access to a copy of the plan, and has thus partnered with Public Libraries to provide copies of the plan in all reference sections of the Islands’ libraries,” Ms Excell said.

Comments may be sent to or delivered to the FOI Unit at Elizabethan Square, Building “D”. The deadline for submissions is Friday, 15 November 2007.
