Are other public bodies included in the Scottish Government's monthly FOI performance statistics sent to the Scottish Information commissioner? If the answer is yes, could you please send me a list of all other public bodies included.
No, it does not. The monthly FOI/EIR performance statistics we send to the Scottish Information Commissioner includes all of the Directorates and Executive Agencies that are covered by the ‘Scottish Ministers’ designation in Schedule 1, Part 1 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, with the exception of the Scottish Prison Service, which uses a separate IT platform from the Scottish Government and so reports separately. Details of the Scottish Government’s structure including its breakdown into Directorates can be located at the following link: https://www.gov.scot/about/how-government-is-run/ .
You may wish to note that all Scottish public authorities (including the Scottish Government) provide quarterly FOI/EIR statistics to the Scottish information commissioner. This can be found at the following link STATS - Scottish Information Commissioner (itspublicknowledge.info)
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.
