GUIDE TO INFORMATION AVAILABLE THROUGH THE MODELPUBLICATION SCHEME 2015

 

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the Act) requires Scottish public authorities to produce and maintain a publication scheme. Authorities are under a legal obligation to:

 

  • publish the classes of information that they make routinely available

  • tell the public how to access the information and what it might cost.

 

SUIP Ltd has adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2015 produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner. The scheme has the Commissioner’s approval until 31 May 2019.

 

You can see this scheme on our website at www.suip.co.uk or by contacting us at the address below.

The purpose of this Guide to Information is to:

 

  • allowyou to see what information is available (and what is not available) in relation to each class.

  • state what charges may be applied.

  • explain how you canfind the information easily.

  • provide contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing the information.

  • explain how to request information we hold that has not been published.

We will publish the information we hold that falls within the classes of information below. If a document contains information that is exempt under Scotland’s freedom of information laws (for example sensitive personal information or a trade secret), we may remove or redact the information before publication but we will explain why.
