Freedom of Information Requests (FOI) are an integral part of the public sector’s commitment to transparency. However, FOI requests can often be a costly and time-consuming task to complete.
FOI exemptions allow public sector organisations to protect information, reduce the burden of responding to vexatious FOI requests and prioritise valid requests for information.
This Understanding and Applying FOI Exemptions In-House course gives your organisation the necessary guidance and skills to apply exemptions.
Run this bespoke course at your organisation to gain a brief and comprehensive overview of the FOI landscape; apply the commercial interest test; improve how you manage vexatious requests; establishing over the cost threshold; learn how to write a refusal notice and apply the public interest test.
