Freedom of information:
Last updated on 22 Oct 2009
Records are one of the Authority’s most vital assets. They support decision making, document activities, provide evidence of policies, decisions and transactions, and underpin the daily work of the Authority.
To ensure that records are managed properly, the Authority aims to conform to the Code of Practice on Records Management which has been issued by Ministers in accordance with Section 61 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and intends to adopt a Disposal and Retention Policy (currently under development and available March 2010) detailing how it intends to manage its records. This details the Authority’s commitment to ensuring that records are accurate and reliable, can be retrieved easily and are kept for no longer than is absolutely necessary.
For further information on records management and the Authority’s Disposal and Retention Policy, please contact: Heather Manson, Business Improvement Manager (see Scheme Accountability for contact details)
