1/               Executive Order No. 2 (EO 2) is the enabling order for FOI. EO 2 operationalizes in the Executive Branch the People’s                    Constitutional right to information. EO 2 also provides the State policies to full public disclosure and transparency in                        the public service. EO 2 is an important enabling mechanism to promote transparency in the government's                                      administrative process. Through FOI, citizens are empowered to make a formal request to get information held by the                      government, barring certain sensitive and important data related to the nation's security. FOI complements continuing                      proactive information disclosure efforts where agencies are duty-bound to publish information in the spirit of openness                    and transparency.
