ABSTRACT

This study aims to find whether there is a difference between the resulting responsiveness and substantial responsiveness, as noticing citizen satisfaction of the result of information disclosure is not equivalent to a high rate of information disclosure. Previous studies focused on the analysis of the resulting responsiveness such as disclosure decision and processing time. However, this study would identify how much opened information is equal to requested information on the side of substantial responsiveness. This study found that accuracy dropped as opening not requested information but different information and completeness dropped as omitting some part of information or opening unseizable information on the side of substantial responsiveness. There are differences between the resulting responsiveness and substantial responsiveness. Some of the opened information is not requested information despite the disclosure decision. It takes over ten days despite the immediately disclose decision. The main reason for the decline in substantial responsiveness is the passing of document retention period and the absence of data. Therefore, the obligation for the creation and preservation of records for public agencies will have to be followed with the agencies’ will to opening information. Although this study analyzes the limited cases, it is significant to enunciate there are differences between the resulting responsiveness and substantial responsiveness.
