Departmental FOI Guidance

The request was successful.

Dear Scottish Agricultural Science Agency,

This is a Freedom of Information Act request about the information management systems in your department. Please provide me with a copy of your department’s guidance to processing freedom of information requests – ideally this would cover the end to end process from receipt to closure, but please provide whatever you hold. Please note that I am not looking for any ICO or MoJ guidance which may be available publically, I am specifically interested in Scottish Agricultural Science Agency produced internal guidance including policy, process and procedures.

Yours faithfully,


Dear Mr/Ms Gardiner

Thank you for your request dated 16 March 2014 under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for a copy of SASA's guidance on processing Freedom of Information requests.

We received your request on 17 March 2014 and will respond in accordance with FOISA by 14 April 2014.

Please note that, as from April 2008, SASA became a division of the core Scottish Government, becoming known as Science & Advice for Scottish Agriculture, and is therefore no longer an Agency.

If you have any queries, please contact me quoting case number FoI/14/00477.
