Guide to Information
Freedom of Information Scotland Act (FOISA) 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
Kibble provides the functions of secure accommodation and education which have been included in the extension to FOISA, as such these functions are now covered by all aspects of FOISA legislation including publishing information. Kibble has adopted the Model Publication Scheme produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner. View the Model Publication Scheme at www.itspublicknowledge.info/mps
The purpose of this Guide to Information is to:
- Let you see what information Kibble publishes under each class of the Model Publication Scheme
- Tell you how to find the information easily
- Tell you about any charges for the information
- Give contact details for enquiries and help with accessing the information
- Explain how to request information we haven’t published
Availability and Formats
The information we publish through the Model Publication Scheme is, wherever possible, available on our website. We offer alternative arrangements for people who do not want to, or cannot, access the information online or by inspection at our premises. For example, we can usually arrange to send information to you in paper copy (although there may be a charge for this).
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), we may remove or redact the information before publication but we will explain why.
Kibble has adopted the Open Government Licence (OGL) for the information it publishes through this Guide. You can view the OGL here: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/. This sets out what you can and cannot do with our published information where we are the copyright holder.
Where Kibble does not hold the copyright in information we publish, we will make that clear in this guide.
There is no charge to view information on our website or at our premises.
We may charge for providing information to you e.g., photocopying and postage, but we will charge you no more than it actually costs us to do so. We will always tell you what the cost is before providing the information to you.
Our photocopying charge per sheet of paper is:
Standard A4 copies (Black and white) will be charged at £0.0045 per single sheet
Standard A4 copies (Colour) will be charged at £0.0475 per single sheet
Information provided on secure pen drives will be charged at £20.00 plus VAT (a higher charge may apply for larger pen drives).
We will recharge any postage costs at the rate we paid to send the information to you.
When providing copies of pre-printed publications, we will charge no more than the cost per copy of the total print run.
We do not pass on any other costs to you for our published information.
