FREEDOM OF INFORMATION
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives people the right to request information from organisations that receive public funds, including Further Education colleges. The Act aims to improve transparency over how public bodies operate, why they make the decisions they do, and how they spend tax-payers’ money.
