Increased power and proactive compliance with Public Records Act
Sadly, there is too little understanding and compliance with the Public Records Act. This means official records are being hidden or not even formally recorded. Such deficiencies enable corruption and nepotism.
An example is military being deployed domestically, all with notebooks, then they all magically are not longer kept when requested. Another is government officials going to meetings, and not keeping notes to avoid OIA or using another email address for official work (such as a contractor using their business email, which is not a personal email account, which is a loop hole).
Chief Archivist needs to conduct periodic inspections of government departments to ensure compliance.
Why the contribution is important
Another area that is poorly implemented that undermines democracy.
