Human Resources

Here is a selection of some of our human resources policies which are currently in use:

Register of Interests

Working with the Commission

Our Information Resources

Information assurance and management

Freedom of Information

You can make a request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) by emailing the Commission at or by writing to us at our Thistle House address. FOISA requests are dealt with in accordance with FOISA legislation which means we will respond to your request within 20 working days of receiving your request. 

We need contact details from you in order that we can clarify a request if we are unsure about any element of it. You have the right to ask us to review our response to you in the event that you are dissatisfied with our original response.

Following this, should you remain dissatisfied, you can refer the matter to the Scottish Information Commissioner who would look at what we had done.

More information about your rights under FOISA are available from the Scottish Information Commissioner's website.
