Barra and Vatersay Community Campus (BVCC) gateway report: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

Copy of the gateway report carried out on the Barra and Vatersay Community Campus Project that was completed in October 2020.


Gateway review reports are conducted for the Scottish Government and associated public sector organisations to help support the successful delivery of projects by ensuring that good programme and project management practice is being used; that key risks are actively managed and to identify any learning points for better practice. The reports contain only a snapshot of the programme or project at a particular point in time and since these reports were produced progress will have been made in addressing any recommendations for improvement.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA applies to that information. This is because it is personal data of a third party, ie the names/contact details of individuals, and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018. This exemption is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the publi interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.

Attached is a copy of the report you requested.
