We regularly advise on Freedom of Information Act and Data Protection issues.
Indeed, much has changed since the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR) were introduced. Predictably, the Information Commissioner, Tribunals and the courts have all affected the way legislation has been interpreted and applied in practice. News stories continue to emerge about misuse of public sector data and it is likely that Government policy, promoting transparency will continue whichever party wins power. Geldards’ information law specialists have a wealth of experience in helping public sector clients to navigate the rules regarding freedom of information, particularly in the context of public procurement challenges and claims. Recent examples include obtaining an injunction for a health body to recover information mistakenly disclosed and advising County schools on obligations under FOIA.
We are highly experienced in advising on the outsourcing of ICT and back office services and shared services arrangements.
