The Freedom of Information Act 2000 was fully implemented on 1 January 2005. It promotes greater openness and accountability across the public sector and gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities.

Under the provisions of the Act you can access information held by the University of Bath in two ways:

1. Publication scheme

The information you are looking for may already be accessible. The University makes a huge amount of information publicly available via its website. The publication scheme is a guide to the types of information that the University publishes or intends to publish as a matter of routine.

On 1 January 2009 the University adopted the Model Publication Scheme prepared and approved by the Information Commissioner.

2. Right of access request

You may submit a request for information in writing. On receipt of a written request, the University is obliged to inform any enquirer whether it holds the information in question and, if it does, subject to exemptions set out in the Act, to supply that information to the enquirer within 20 working days.

Please help us to provide the information you require quickly and efficiently by describing it in as much detail as possible and by addressing your access to information request in writing to:

James Button, FOI Officer
University of Bath
Claverton Down

or via e-mail to: freedom-of-information@bath.ac.uk.

Please note that the University may make a charge for the provision of certain types of requested information.
