FOI requests must be in writing and do not need to include a reason. While you must include a name and contact details, unless you are seeking your own personal information an alias can be used.
The FOI Law applies to records held by the Department of Agriculture, which are information in any form – including documents, maps, plans, graphs or drawings, photographs, and audio or video recordings. While you might not know exactly what records are relevant to your request, please be as specific as possible about the information you are seeking, as this will help you get a prompt response.
There is no application fee and you will never be charged to inspect records. However, you may be required to pay copying or change of format fees before accessing information in certain ways. There is also a CI$50 fee for expedited service, which is payable when you make your application. The Information Manager in the relevant public authority will help you to understand if any fees apply to your request.
