Year: 2019

Number: 20-19A

Department: Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice

WHEREAS the cost and time involved with the processing of an information request as found in The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Regulations requires the fee schedule to be reviewed in its entirety, to remain current and in line with actual costs involved and/or incurred with the process itself;

WHEREAS the local authority's internal processing regulations and/or boundaries may be unclear, allowing for mistakes to be made from the initial receipt of LAFOIP requests;

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the provincial government to review the fees section as indicated in The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Regulations to reflect current costs;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that SARM lobby the provincial government to review and amend:

(i) The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Regulations to ensure that local authority's internal roles are more clearly stipulated in the regulations; and

(ii) the Access to Information Request Form(A) to include directions for the individual submitting the request: "Envelope should be clearly labeled PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL and addressed TO THE HEAD OF THE LOCAL AUTHORITY.”
