FOREWORD BY THE HEAD OF DEPARTMENT
The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa has been hailed as one of the most progressive documents in the world.
Amongst the rights enshrined in our Constitution is a right of access to information and this right is therefore given effect in Section 32 of the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000.
The KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Treasury acknowledges the need to promote the principles of transparency and openness. Observance of these principles does not only make a significant contribution in deleting our secretive past. It further serves to enhance good governance and effective participation of broader society in the democratic processes.
The KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Treasury hereby affirms its support of these principles by publishing its manual provided below.
