RTE’s RTE is looking to expand its reach in the country, as the broadcaster looks to tap into the burgeoning RTI market.
The broadcaster said that it would launch an RTI platform for its educational programmes, which will offer access to its audience and help its audience engage with the public.
RTI, the RTI Act, allows for private citizens to request the information of a government agency or agency or government body for a purpose other than their own.
RTI requests are processed by the government agency concerned, which then publishes the information to its respective website and on its website.
As of this week, the broadcaster has over 300,000 RTI requests on its platform.
The platform will also offer access for RTI applications submitted by students and other public users to the RTIA website, which is open to everyone.
“We want to provide more transparency and greater transparency for the people, and that is why we are looking to make RTI accessible to all,” said RTE spokesperson Johannes Brouwers.
The broadcaster said it will also create a “RTI portal for education” on its site, which it will launch in the next couple of weeks.
There are currently no plans for a formal launch of the platform, as Brouwal said that he is yet to receive any RTI notifications from the government, which are due within two weeks.
