Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Officers co-ordinate the handling of Freedom of Information (FOI) requests.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 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, subject to exemptions applying.

The University has an obligation to the public under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and Environmental Information Regulation (EIR) regarding information that it holds.

Our FOI Officers also manage the publication scheme and offer guidance to staff on any aspect of compliance with the Act.
