Sent to Congress by President Lula and signed into Law by President Dilma the Access to Information law (LAI) revolutionized public administration in Brazil. When this law went into effect information became a tool for the monitoring and control of public administration, accessible to any citizen and not just the property of the State.
From May 2012 to August 2014, the Federal Government received more than 200,000 requests for information – with 98% receiving a response within an average of 13 days – well below the limits set by the Law (20 days with a possible 10 days additional on request.
