Through a combination of staff training, improved processes and the efficient management of information institutions can help ensure they protect their reputation and legal interests through compliance with all necessary legislation.
There now exists a range of legislation and regulation controlling the way in which information must be created, managed and accessed within our institutions. Indeed, sometimes the number and complexity of such requirements can seem both bewildering and burdensome.
Our resources are designed to enable easy access to the guidance material you need and to provide you with the data you need to be able to assess both how effectively and efficiently your compliance measures really are.
This downloadable tool enables institutions to log and track the progress of requests received under FOI, Data Protection and the Environmental Information Regulations. As well as automatically calculating all relevant dates and generating reports for internal use it can also be used to automatically collate the data required for the annual Information Legislation and Management Survey.
This pulls together all the sector related FOI guidance material, from whatever source, and makes it accessible from one place. It provides multiple entry routes to the material and provides a useful summary of each source.
Based on the FOI Code of Practice for the management of records, the Records Management Maturity Model provides an objective benchmark on which to measure the ‘maturity’ of the processes and policies you have in place to manage your records.
All the data and analysis from the Information Legislation and Management survey run annually with Universities UK and GuildHE since 2005. This data represents the definitive guide to the impact of FOI on the sector since its implementation.
