Freedom of Information

107. As an Executive Agency of the Scottish Government, and thereby falling under the auspices of Scottish Ministers as a 'public authority', the Agency will comply with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. It will provide information to members of the public in response to individual requests for information or as part of the Agency's publication scheme. The Agency will work with both the Scottish Information Commissioner and the Scottish Government's Freedom of Information Unit to ensure that information is appropriately provided to members of the public in a spirit of openness and transparency.
