Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act (FOISA) came into force in 2002 and was introduced to make information held by public bodies more accessible. The main provisions of this Act came into force on 1st January 2005 allowing anyone to access information held by Scottish public authorities. The Scottish Public Pensions Agency has a duty to comply with FOISA and reply to FOI requests within 20 working days.

Since 2012 SPPA has used an online guide to information, in line with the Scottish Information Commissioner's model publication scheme, to illustrate the work of our organisation and the information we routinely publish.
