More doom and gloom on progress to full FOI

Research published by ARk group:

"Research conducted by Ark Consulting at Ark Group’s Knowledge Management for the Public Sector conference, indicates that 78 per cent of public-sector respondents currently have or are developing projects to ensure compliance with the Freedom of Information Act. However, 48 per cent of respondents remain unsure whether they will meet the 2005 deadline."

"Another worrying finding is that less than half of the respondents are able to identify an existing project plan for the implementation of FOIA. Over 40 per cent are also concerned about their access to relevant skills and expertise to plan for implementation"

Do you work on FOI in the public sector - do these findings match with your progress or are these reports ( have been 6 or 7 in the last few months) more about promoting document management tools and consultancy services? Let me know your views :
