Welcome to Edge Hill University’s Publication Scheme. The purpose of the scheme is to proactively ensure a significant amount of information is publicly available, without the need for the submission of FOI requests.
The Scheme is a guide to the information the University intends to publish routinely to comply with its obligation under the Freedom of Information Act. Information is grouped into the following seven categories, as recommended by the Information Commissioner:
- Who we are and what we do
Organisational information, structures, locations and contacts
- What we spend and how we spend it
Financial information relating to projected and actual income and expenditure, procurement, contracts and financial audit
- What our priorities are and how we are doing
Strategies and plans, performance indicators, audits, inspections and reviews
- How we make decisions
Decision making processes and records of decisions
- Our policies and procedures
Current written protocols, policies and procedures for delivering our services and responsibilities
- Lists and registers
Information contained in currently maintained lists and registers
- The services we offer
Information about the services we offer including guidance and newsletters.
You have the right, under the Freedom of Information Act, to request any information held which has not already been made available through this publication scheme. Whilst the University will endeavour to be as helpful as possible in providing access to information, the University reserves the right to make a charge to cover any costs incurred in providing information in alternative formats. Requests have to be made in writing although it is to be noted that the University is not required to release information to which an exemption legitimately applies.
It is important that this publication scheme meets your needs. Should you find the scheme difficult to understand or you are unhappy with the service that you have received please let us know. Any enquiries or requests relating to the Publication Scheme should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
