Publication Schemes

Each public authority covered by the Freedom of Information Law has a legal duty to adopt and maintain a publication scheme in accordance with s. 5 of the FOI Law. The main purpose of a publication scheme is to make information readily available without the need for specific written requests. Schemes are intended to encourage organisations to publish proactively, and develop a greater culture of openness.

The Law states that Information to be published by public authorities includes:

  • The functions of the authority, what work it does and how it sets about its tasks
  • The departments and agencies of the authority
  • The subjects handled by each department or authority, with the locations of the departments and agencies and the opening hours of all offices
  • The title and business address of the Principal Officer and other key officers within the authority
  • Classes of records held
  • Manuals, interpretations, rules, guidelines, practices or precedents
