To fully meet the commitments defined in the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Model Publication Scheme all information produced by the Department will be made available unless:
- the Department does not hold it
- the information is exempt under one of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) exemptions or Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) exceptions, or its release is prohibited under another statute
- the information is readily and publicly available from an external website
- the information is archived, out of date or otherwise inaccessible
- it would be impractical or resource-intensive to prepare the material for routine release
Although this Scheme sets out the type of information we commit to publish it is not an exhaustive list.
The Department has a legal commitment to conform to the ICO’s model publication scheme, but we aim to provide as much information as possible on a routine basis.
