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. This allows for the publication or giving of records outside of FOI provided that such publication or giving of access is not prohibited by law. The scheme commits FOI bodies to make information available as part of their normal business activities in accordance with this scheme.

 

This Department’s FOI Publication Scheme is below. Each link in the table leads to a page comprising relevant information in the category as well as links to relevant information on the Department’s websites. If the information is not currently made publicly available by the Department, you may consider making a Freedom of Information Request.

 

See here for further information on how to make a request.
