Freedom of Information Act Publication Scheme
The following publication scheme is for St Cross College of the University of Oxford.
It follows the standard format required by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) from January 2009. It sets out what information the College publishes or intends to publish, how the information can be accessed and whether or not a charge will be made for it.
The Communications Manager is responsible for maintaining the scheme on behalf of the College. Please note that enquiries and requests for information should be addressed to the Freedom of Information Administrator (the Bursary Administrator).
The purpose of the scheme is to give a clear indication of which College publications are routinely accessible, so that the public can be informed as far as reasonably possible of the purpose and nature of college activities, and to assist in developing a greater culture of openness in general.
Through the scheme, the College endeavours to be as transparent as possible about its activities, while at the same time recognising that there are exemptions within the Act.
All material associated with the definitions in the classes contained in the scheme are available either in hard copy, electronically or via the College website.
It is important to us that this Publication Scheme meets your needs. If you find the scheme difficult to understand, please let us know. We also welcome suggestions as to how the scheme might be improved. Any questions, comments, or complaints about this scheme should be sent in writing to:
St Cross College
The college reserves the right to make a charge for printed copies of some documents available on the website to cover administrative costs.
Information which falls into the following categories is not published as part of the scheme:
- the College does not hold the information;
- the information is exempt under one of the FOI exemptions or Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) exceptions, or its release is prohibited under another statute;
- the information is archived, out of date or otherwise inaccessible;
- it would be impractical or resource-intensive to prepare the material for routine release.
