This chapter expounds on the role of PIOs. It starts by reviewing the decisions and instructions of the CIC and the government, before moving on to a list of the various duties and responsibilities of PIOs. Various procedures are then examined, including those for the transfer of application, the disposal of an information request, and the limits for the information supply. One section concentrates on the additional fee for seeking information, while another section is focused on the assistance that is available to a PIO. The chapter also talks about the penalties and disciplinary action a PIO can face in case of complaints. A list of the different documents that should be maintained by PIOs is included. These documents are used to help the public authority collect data and submit these to the Information Commission.

Keywords:   Public Information Officers, duties, transfer of application, information supply, information request, responsibilities, penalties, disciplinary action, Information Commission
