Abuja 7 September 2016: The Bureau For Public Service Reforms (BPSR) has today proactively published on its website (www.bpsr.gov.ng) a detail summary of the entire Freedom of Information (FOI) request it received and responded to since the launch of its FOI Portal.
The BPSR electronic FOI portal remains the first initiative of its kind developed by any government public institution in Nigeria for submitting e-FOI request and receiving corresponding response.
Through a joint partnership with Right To Know (R2K), Nigeria and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, the BPSR in March 2016 re-designed its website with a dedicated Freedom of Information Portal for fulfilling its FOI obligations and incorporated an innovative electronic platform for receiving and responding to e-FOI request.
