Freedom of Information Act Training
The Freedom of Information Act covers all recorded information regardless of what form it is recorded in or how long it has been held. The Act is designed to encourage openness and transparency in the way public bodies work, and to promote accountability in decision making and public expenditure.
Whenever public authorities receive a Freedom of Information (FOI) request, they must take care to respect the requirements of the Act whilst not breaching other legislation concerning privacy laws. Organisations must ensure that their employees are equipped with the knowledge and understanding to deal with FOI requests.
