The purpose of the overall study is to assess the broader publics understanding of their right of access to information, the process of exercising their rights and to ascertain the public knowledge of the Regulators role in the promotion of the right of access to information. Findings from this will assist the Regulator to assess its impact in promoting right of access to information and identify gaps in its advocacy and awareness programmes. It will further inform the intensification of the organisational strategy in realising its mandate of monitoring compliance and implementation of PAIA provisions.
