This guide is designed primarily for officials in central government departments who may be involved in the handling of FOIA requests, but who are not FOIA specialists. It is intended to offer a succinct and easy-to-use introduction to the FOIA and to be complementary to more detailed official advice which will be available from the Home Office and the Information Commissioner. The public will expect public authorities: To know about FOI; To follow the set procedures; To be helpful in overcoming problems; To disclose information. It covers the essential information you need to know about the Act, and gives guidance on what you need to do in normal situations to apply it. It cannot, however, replace the need to take legal advice, as appropriate, on the proper application of the Act.
