Summary of FOI

《og真人平台》于2000年11月30日通过,并将全面生效, across the public sector, on 1 January 2005. The Act is enforced by the Information Commissioner, who oversees both Freedom of Information and Data Protection legislation. 该法案涵盖了在该法案中定义的“公共当局”,包括高等教育机构. 该法案赋予公众获取公共当局持有的所有类型的“记录”信息的新权利, sets out exemptions from that general right, and places a number of obligations on public authorities. 《og真人平台》的目的是在整个公共部门促进更大的公开性和问责制. 为此,它根据《og真人平台》赋予公共当局两项主要责任:

  • The University was committed to producing a publication scheme, 哪一个是og真人平台所持有的信息的指南,这些信息通常会向公众提供, such as websites and prospectuses etc. Under the Act, “信息”包括保存在机构内任何地方的所有信息,不需要以特定文件或结构的形式.
  • og真人平台必须处理个人的请求并发布信息,除非og真人平台能够证明,因为该法案的豁免适用而隐瞒信息是合理的.

Under the Data Protection Act, individuals already have the right to access information about themselves, held on computer, and in some paper files. Such requests for information are known as a 'subject access request’. For the University and other public bodies, 《og真人平台》扩展了这些权利,允许访问og真人平台持有的所有类型的信息, whether personal or non-personal.

该法案要求大学作为公共当局,采用和保持一个 publication scheme. 出版计划是大学致力出版的资料指南. 这样做的目的是主动提供大量信息, without the need to respond to specific requests.

Any individual can make a request to the University for information. 提出请求的人不一定是该信息的主体. 如果个人是该信息的主体,那么《og真人平台》保护数据主体的原则将优先于任何信息自由权利.

The Act gives applicants the following rights:

  • 被告知信息是否存在——被称为确认或否认的责任
  • To receive the information, and where possible in the manner requested, for example in paper or electronic format
  • To receive reasons for a decision to withhold information.

Anyone is able make a request for information, although the request must be made in writing, which includes emails and fax etc. 申请人必须包括姓名和地址(电子邮件地址可以接受),并提供所需信息的详细信息. Such requests must be dealt with within 20 working days.

该法案规定了获取大学所持有信息的一般权利,但有些信息可能被视为豁免信息,因此不必根据个人请求提供. There are 23 exemptions as follows:

s21. Information accessible to public by other means

s22. Information intended for future publication

s23. 由处理保安事务的机构提供或与之有关的资料

s24. National security

s26. 国防

s27. International relations

s28. Relations within the United Kingdom

s29. The economy

s30. Investigations and proceedings conducted by public authorities

s36. 对公共事务有效进行的损害(下议院或上议院持有的豁免信息)

s37. Communications with Her Majesty etc and honours

s38. Health and safety

s39. Environmental information
