Freedom of Information Processes
I have a query regarding the processes public service bodies have devised to respond to Freedom of Information Requests in Ireland I hope some of you can answer. Is there a standard process that organisations follow or does each public body do it slightly differently? Do you have a dedicated Freedom of Information post of is it a small part of someones job role. Thanks in advance, Fiona

Hi Fiona, everything you need to know can be found at www.foi.gov.ie. The Central Policy Unit operate this FOI site which sets out standard guidance for all public bodies. This is complemented by visiting the Information Commissioners website which gives further advice and guidance. www.oic.ie. Most public bodies have a dedicated FOI officer post and office. The people concerned may have other roles as well within the organisation.
