FOI Publication Scheme
Here you will find details of our FOI Publication Scheme.
Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability as set out in Sections 8(5) and 11(3) of the Act.
Purpose of Scheme
The Scheme is designed to facilitate the provision of information to the greatest extent possible, except for information exempted under the Act. In preparing, reviewing or revising a Publication Scheme, an FOI body shall have regard to the public interest in:
- allowing public access to information held by the FOI body
- the publication of reasons for decisions made by the FOI body
- publishing information of relevance or interest to the general public in relation to its activities and functions generally.
Scheme Format and Access
The Scheme is web based with links to information under the headings as set out below.
