Thank your for agreeing to complete this important survey.
The purpose of this survey is to identify specific barriers that stand in the way of the City of New Orleans being able to quickly and effectively meet the public's need for public information -- especially administrative data sets (such as permits, crime reports, and property assessments), but also contracts and communications.
This is not a legal investigation, but rather an attempt to identify the practical and political reasons that deter local public agencies from sharing data. Responses will be aggregated and analyzed to identify patterns so we can work collaboratively with stakeholders both within and outside of city government to improve the system for access to public records.
Protecting your privacy is absolutely vital to the collection of this data. Your responses will remain completely confidential.
Please respond as accurately and truthfully as possible. For each type of city information you’ve tried to acquire, please fill out a separate survey, if possible.
