Freedom of Information

As a Scottish public body, South of Scotland Enterprise (SOSE) complies with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 which is enforced by the Office of the Scottish Information Commissioner who has the necessary powers to regulate compliance.

The Act provides a right of access to information held by public bodies. It also requires Scottish public authorities to produce and maintain a publication scheme.

Authorities are under a legal obligation to:

  • Publish the classes of information that they make routinely available
  • Tell the public how to access the information and what it might cost

We have adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2018 produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner.

In adopting the Single Model Scheme, SOSE has produced a Guide to Information which:

  • Allows you to see what information is available (and what is not available) in relation to each class
  • States what charges may be applied
  • Explains how to find the information easily
  • Provides contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing information
  • Explains how to request information that has not been published

To make a request for information under the Freedom of information (Scotland) Act, please contact:
