NBS places 5th in 2017 Freedom of information Ranking up from 43rd in 2016

DOWNLOAD REPORT

The ranking is based on an assessment of levels of access to procurement related information from public and security sector institutions. Specifically, information on procurement plans, procurement processes and capital expenditure was sought. 
The FOI rankings build on two previous editions of annual FOI rankings. This is the aim of the rankings; that Procurement related information would be liberated and made as coherent as possible; and in a way that enables increased efficiency in public service delivery.

The public institutions listed were ranked based on benchmarks for disclosure within the Nigerian Freedom of Information Act, 2011. Specifically, these benchmarks are:

  • Proactive disclosure:

    This is further divided into

    1. Full proactive disclosure (22 Points)
    2. Partial proactive disclosure (17 Points)
    3. No proactive disclosure (0 Point)

    Full proactive disclosure is obtained where information on the procurement plans and capital expenditure of a public institution is found on their website. Where a part of this information is found, partial disclosure applied. Where there is no disclosure of procurement related information on the website of the public institution, there is no proactive disclosure. 

    Note that even though proactive disclosure is the highest parameter, an institution that discloses information after recieving a request from us would score less than an institution that already proactively disclosed the information. For the purpose of this ranking, the total ranking score for any institution would be the score for proactive disclosure + number of days it took the institution to respond to our request (and not number of days it took the institution to disclose the information on their website after the request was made) + level of disclosure.

  • Responsiveness to requests for information:

    Where there is no full proactive disclosure, a request for information is made. Responsiveness to requests for information is ranked based on:

    1. Response within 7 days (20 Points)
    2. Response with 14 days (15 Points)
    3. Response within 15 days to infinity (10 Points)
    4. No response (0 Point)
  • Level of disclosure to requests for information.

    This is based on the following:

    1. Full disclosure (22 Points)
    2. Partial Disclosure (17 Points)
    3. No Disclosure (0 Points)

This is the aim of the rankings; that Procurement related information would be liberated and made as coherent as possible; and in a way that enables the more efficient public service delivery.
