Our approaches

The Commissioner's Strategic Plan 2020-2024 includes six strategic objectives:

  1. Increase knowledge and understanding of FOI rights
  2. Enable and support high standards of FOI policy and practice
  3. Develop Scottish public sector culture and practice where the proactive disclosure of information is routine and valued
  4. Influence and support the development and strengthening of Scottish FOI law and practice
  5. Contribute to Scotland being respected as a world-leader in openness and transparency
  6. Be recognised as an organisation of independent and trusted experts that is run efficiently, governed effectively and is open and transparent.

To support the achievement of some of these objectives, we have set out a strategic approach or framework for certain key areas. These guiding documents inform the specific activities to be carried out each year, described in our Operational Plans.

In addition to these documents, our work towards achieving our strategic objectives is also supported by a range of procedures and policies which can be found in Class 2 of our Guide to Information.
