This specifies the categories of information that IfATE publishes, and how to access the information.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) requires public authorities to adopt and maintain a publication scheme, the purpose of which is to:
We publish all our information on this website.
This publication scheme is not a list of individual publications but rather a description of the classes or types of information that we are committed to publishing.
The scheme is not an exhaustive list of all the types of information that we publish – our policy is to publish proactively as much information as we can where the information would have a wider public interest.
The scheme does not include information that we consider to be sensitive, such as certain types of commercial or personal information, or information about security matters or which comprises legal advice.
Most of our publications are available online. Where publications are not available online, we can provide details of how to obtain hardcopies.
IfATE is a Non-Departmental Public Body, and our information is subject to Crown Copyright administered by The Stationery Office (TSO).
If you want to re-use or reproduce our publications, e.g. commercially or for circulation for educational purposes, you will in most cases need to apply for an Open Government Licence.
If you would like to provide feedback – good or bad – about our publication scheme, or have a specific complaint, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following information on our organisation, structures, locations and contracts is available online:
The following information on our strategies and plans, performance indicators is available online:

If you wish to make an FOI request, please contact email@example.com.
