Freedom of Information Act 2000 Publication Scheme

The following is the publication scheme for Wolfson College of the University of Oxford.

It follows the standard form required by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) (January 2009). It sets out the information the College publishes or intends to publish and how the information can be accessed.

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. The scheme also seeks to assist in developing a greater culture of openness in relation to College matters. .

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 to the disclosure of information under   the Freedom of Information Act.2000.

All material associated with the scheme is  available either in hard copy (a charge may be made to cover administrative costs) or electronically  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:

The College Secretary

Information which falls into the following categories is not published as part of the scheme:

  • Information which the College does not hold.
  • information which is exempt under one of the FOI exemptions or Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) exceptions, or its release is prohibited under another statute;
