The Scottish Information Commissioner Needs You

SIC Web Page

The Scottish Information Commissioner is conducting a survey on FOISA learning and development resources. We would encourage all our Scottish friends and delegates to complete the survey and have a say in the future priorities of OSIC.

“The Scottish Information Commissioner is seeking a better understanding of the learning and development needs of the staff of Scottish public authorities who want to know more about Freedom of Information (FOI). We also want to find out more about what FOI learning and development support is available in Scotland today.

This survey covers FOI and the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) – it is NOT gathering information about data protection training. We’ll use the findings of this short survey to identify where we can best focus our efforts to provide authorities with learning and development support which meets their needs.

The survey is completely anonymous, although you may give us your name if you prefer. It should take between 15 and 30 minutes to complete (depending on your answers).”

A survey report will be published on the OSIC website.

Don’t forget we are running Scotland’s first certificated FOISA course in Edinburgh in February.  This is accredited by the Centre for FOI which is part of the University of Dundee. The Executive Director of the Centre is Kevin Dunion (the former Scottish Information Commissioner).
