Uruguay Group Launches Website for Requesters

1 October 2012

The Center for Archives and Access to Public Information (CAINFO) in Uruguay has created a website for the filing of information requests.

 The portal “allows access to order public information quickly and easily, facilitating the use of this right to all citizens,” according to the nonprofit organization, founded in 2009.

The effort is the result of a partnership between CAINFO and DATA (http://www.datauy.org/), a new organization working on open data, transparency and access to information.

In addition to helping with the filing of requests, the system, named ¿Qué Sabés?, will provide monitoring of official responses.

The system based on the open source tool Alaveteli used in countries like the United Kingdom, Brazil, Spain and New Zealand, among others. (See previous FreedomInfo.org report of others’s use of this system.)
