How are you actually supposed to be informed if it is so hard to find things?

Here’s a quick one.  On facebook I saw Premier Dunkley respond to someone’s comment suggesting there is information available regarding public sector reform in the budget brief for the Cabinet Office.  Fair enough, so I figured I’d go read it.

Here’s one of the all too common problems.  I can’t find any sort of budget brief for the Cabinet Office for 2017/2018 on the website.  I’ve googled and I can’t find it anywhere.  I have no doubt it exists, the problem is: where.

This is one thing that is very frustrating about government today.  The new website is frankly terrible for finding much of anything. There used to be a wealth of information on it under the PLP which was all removed.  Now it’s a fancy new design but the content is poor and it is infrequently updated.

This is one of the things that can haunt the OBA.  They certainly could be actively trying to solve certain issues but they don’t do a very good job of communicating it.
