Information Managers Recognized
Following a full day of talks with Government officials the Information Commissioner's Office wrapped up International Right to Know Day (Wednesday, 28 September) with a reception to recognize the dozens of Information Managers from across all government entities.
His Excellency the Governor Duncan Taylor, CBE hosted the function at Government House. The event was just one highlight of Right to Know Week 2011 (RTK) which is taking place this year under the theme Information is Key.
"Freedom of Information (FOI) is fairly new here, but I detect a change in the culture already," said Mr. Taylor. "Information Managers have a very important job to do and I support all your efforts - which should result in better government and better customer service."
Each year RTK Week reminds the public that the Cayman Islands' Freedom of Information Law (FOI Law) provides access to government records - which is essential to an effective democracy.
"I thank you for the wonderful job you are doing, and I fully appreciate and support your responsibilities under the FOI law," added Information Commissioner Jennifer Dilbert, MBE.
Other RTK Week activities include a church service, presentations by the Governor, media appearances, as well as training sessions for government employees.
This is the third annual observance hosted by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), which was established in January 2009.
