PAIA Manual


PAIA AND PRIVATE BODIES

The Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000 (PAIA) creates a framework for the right of access information (as enshrined in section 32 of the Constitution). The purpose of PAIA is to promote a culture of transparency, accountability and good governance in the private (and public) sectors. PAIA places specific compliance requirements on the private sector (and state institutions).

PAIA gives a requester the right to lodge a request for information with the information officer (head) of a private body.
