Vayle Launches FOIdesk, an Outsourced Staffing Service for Ontario Public Sector Entities
Toronto, Ontario – April 11th, 2023 – Vayle, a leading provider of information access, privacy, and security compliance solutions for the public sector, announced the launch of Vayle FOIdesk, an outsourced staffing service for Ontario provincial and municipal entities.
Vayle FOIdesk was developed to address the increasing volume and complexity of Freedom of Information (FOI) requests, coupled with challenges in recruiting and retaining experienced FOI staff. The service will complement the company’s FOI software and advisory services solutions, including privacy compliance assessment (PCA), privacy impact assessment (PIA), and security threat risk assessment (STRA) services.
Shaun McIver, CEO of Vayle, said, “As a leading provider of FOI software for the public sector, we frequently ask our clients about how we can better support their information access programs. They consistently cite resource shortages and a lack of expertise to handle increases in the volume and complexity of FOI requests. Vayle FOIdesk offers a cost-effective solution to address this need.”
Vayle FOIdesk provides the following benefits to Ontario public sector entities:
1. Expertise and Experience: Vayle’s FOI advisors have extensive experience providing FOI support to public entities throughout Ontario. They are well-versed in both MFIPPA and FIPPA and can offer guidance on all aspects of FOI compliance, including handling requests, conducting searches, writing representations, and managing appeals.
2. Cost Savings: Vayle FOIdesk offers substantial cost savings compared to recruiting and hiring additional staff or engaging a full-service law firm. Vayle FOI software subscribers will also receive preferred rates.
3. Flexible Staffing: Vayle can help “right size” its support team to meet fluctuating FOI request demands. Their flexible staffing model provides support on a part-time or full-time basis to cover resource gaps over a period of days, weeks or months. Fractional advisory services can also be provided to those that require expert advice for specific FOI files.
