DFP Publications / FOI
The Department of Finance and Personnel is a transparent and open organisation. We publish a great deal of information about what we do on this website, which you can access by using the search facility clearly marked on our home page. However there may be other issues about which you would like further information, and in this part of our website we explain how you can get such information.
In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 public sector organisations have to routinely publish information whenever possible.
The Information Commissioner, who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, has drawn up a Model Publication Scheme for all public sector organisations, which we have decided to adopt and formally commit to. The Commissioner has also published a Definition Document for government departments which sets out in some detail what his minimum expectations are as far as we are concerned.
Most of the information we make routinely available can be accessed through our website by using the search facility, or the sections below. Such information is continually updated. If you cannot find information through the search engine and we have indicated in the definition document that the information is routinely available this may be because the information cannot be loaded onto our website. In such circumstances please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the information.
