FOI Publication Scheme

Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability as set out in Sections 8(5) and 11(3) of the Act.

This allows for the publication or giving of records outside of FOI provided that such publication or giving of access is not prohibited by law.
The scheme commits FOI bodies to making information available as part of their normal business activities in accordance with this scheme.

Please find the Department of Defence FOI Publication Scheme below.
Each link leads to a page comprising relevant information in the category or to links to relevant information on the Department of Defence website.

If the information you require cannot be found here, you may wish to conduct a search on the Department’s website, or to contact one of the Department’s staff members.

Contact details by area of responsibility are provided at the ‘Contact Us’ link.

Please note it is the policy of the Department of Defence to publish material released under Freedom of Information for non-personal FOI requests.
