Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability as set out in Sections 8(5) and 11(3) of the FOI Act 2014. This allows for the publication or giving of records outside of FOI provided that such publication or giving of access is not prohibited by law. The scheme commits FOI bodies to make information available as part of their normal business activities in accordance with this scheme.
Letterkenny Institute of Technology is currently preparing a Draft Model Publication Scheme under the guidelines recently approved by Mr. Brendan Howlin, TD, and Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform under Section 8 (7) of the Freedom of Information Act 2014. The Model Publication Scheme must be adopted by all FOI bodies and shall set out the required information.
Please find the Letterkenny Institute of Technology’s Draft Publication Scheme below.
