Publication Scheme

Guide to information available through the SEStran Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the Act) requires Scottish public authorities to produce and maintain a publication scheme. Authorities are under a legal obligation to:

  1. publish the classes of information that they make routinely available;
  2. tell the public how to access the information and what it might cost.

SEStran has adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2013 produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner

The purpose of this Guide to Information is to:

  1. allow the public to see what information is available (and what is not available) in relation to each class;
  2. state what charges may be applied;
  3. explain how to find the information easily;
  4. provide contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing the information;
  5. explain how to request information we hold that has not been published.

Availability and formats

The information we publish through the model scheme is, wherever possible, available on our website. We offer alternative arrangements for people who do not want to, or cannot, access the information online or by inspection at our premises. For example, we can usually arrange to send information to you in paper copy (although there may be a charge for this).

Full details of the publication scheme are available here
