It is the policy of the government to accord the public free access to information about its activities. Employees should confine statements made in their official capacity to factual matters, and statements on policies and programs should be limited to those policies and programs presently in effect. If an employee is requested to give information outside the scope of his authority, he should refer the request through the immediate supervisor to his agency head. Inquiries from the press, radio, or TV should be referred to the department head or the public relations officer of the department.
