Under the new DAI policy, a two stages appeals process has been established which includes:
Stage1 - Information Disclosure Committee (IDC):
Requesters who have a legitimate reason to believe the Bank has omitted to publish information mandated for disclosure in the policy, that their request for information has been unreasonably denied, or are able to make a public interest case to override the Policy exceptions, can file an appeal at the IDC (internal committee), which will review carefully the request. If the IDC confirms the initial Bank’s decision to deny a request for information, the requester may in some cases file an appeal to the Appeals Panel.
Stage 2 – Appeals Panel:
The Appeals Panel is composed of three members, with two out of three members external to the Bank. The decision of the Appeals Panel will be final.
