Clarify Responsibilities for the OIA

Public agency responsibility for the OIA is quite confusing for the general public - even the delegation letter between agencies is not public. Publish the responsibilities of MoJ, SSC, Ombudsman including delegations in one place and promote it!

    It might be quite handy to better clarify some of this 'who does what in relation to the OIA' We no longer have an Information Authority and over the years I've sometimes viewed the Ombudsman as 'OIA ambulanceman' and the likes of SSC and MoJ as the occasionally interested open government bystander. I appreciate that there have been recent sentiments expressed to change that standoffishness.

    Thanks Dave for your comments and add more support for the increased need for clarity. Much appreciated. Cheers Amy
