|Promotion of Access to Information
Manual for the National Research Foundation (NRF) in terms of section 14 of the Promotion of
Access to Information Act No 2 of 2000
In order to present a balanced and understandable assessment of its position,
NRF is repeatedly striving to ensure that its reporting and disclosure to
stakeholders is relevant, clear and effective. The Promotion of Access to
Information Act No.2 of 2000 has been formulated to give effect to the right of
access to information as enshrined in the Constitution. NRF views this as not
merely an issue of legal compliance, but rather an opportunity to deal with
information management in a holistic and integrated manner.
NRF places great emphasis on fostering a culture of transparency and
accountability and continues to subscribe to the principles of openness, integrity,
accountability and responsibility to stakeholders.
NRF recognises that corporate governance is a dynamic area and, as such, its
systems of corporate governance are reassessed on an ongoing basis to ensure
that they remain at world-class standards and continue to be relevant to NRF’s
business as it evolves. It therefore complies with the Protocol of Corporate
Governance in the Public Sector (1997), the Public Finance Management Act of
1999 ("the PFMA") and the King II Report on Corporate Governance (2001).
The NRF's first manual in compliance with the Promotion of Access to
Information Act No. 2 of 2000 is available for download in four languages and should assist those requesting
information from NRF.
The documents are available in Adobe PDF format.
