Does your business hold public sector contracts? Are you thinking of bidding on a public sector tender? Do you need to apply for a business license or does a regulatory authority have information about your business?
Any of these activities may be affected by the PATI Act. Join Information Commissioner Gitanjali S. Gutierrez to learn more about the PATI Act and how to navigate its impact. The Public Access to Information (PATI) Act creates a general right to access records held by public authorities, including paper documents, photos, emails, electronic files and more.
The PATI Act can offer an opportunity to get helpful information about procurement criteria, decisions, and past or existing contracts. Some of your business information that is held by public authorities may also be subject to disclosure in response to a PATI request.
Location: Chamber of Commerce, 1 Point Pleasant Road, Hamilton
This morning event is offered free through the Information Commissioner's Office. A light breakfast will be served. RSVP's are required.
