Duty to Publish 150pxlCovid-19: Our published information


Covid-19 FOI UpdateIn recognition of the strong public interest in information on the response by Scottish public authorities to the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, and the role of openness and transparency in strengthening public trust, the Commissioner will publish below relevant information that explains or informs our own response to the pandemic.

The Commissioner encourages other Scottish public authorities to publish information proactively where it would help to inform service-users and communities about their own response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Publication will support the public to be as informed as possible about this vital issue, while also helping to reduce the future impact for organisations of responding to requests for information on related matters.

We will continue to update the information on this page as the situation changes and new information becomes available.

Additional information on the Commissioner's response to the pandemic is available via the published minutes of our Senior Management Team (where it is technically possible to publish these), our Covid-19 Information Hub and our Latest News pages.
