Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
FOI reference: FOI/17/02932 Date received: 10 November 2017 Date responded: 7 December 2017
During 2017 (to date) what percentage from the total FOI requests were supplied free of charge and what percentage was charged?
Although FOISA includes a provision which allows public authorities, including the Scottish Government, to charge a fee for responding to a request the Scottish Government's policy is not to charge applicants for providing information in response to a request. In all cases (therefore 100%), where the Scottish Government has responded to an FOI request this has been free of charge.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses
