Publication of Information

Serco Ltd falls under the provisions of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 solely for the functions relating to the operation of HM Prison Kilmarnock. We have adopted the Scottish Information Commissioner's Single Model Publication Scheme. This scheme is approved by the Commissioner until 31 May 2019.

Freedom of Information Requests

If the information you want is not in our publication scheme then you have the right to make a request to us for that information. The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives you a right of access to the information we hold (whether we publish it or not), subject to certain exemptions.

You can find out more about making a Freedom of Information Request by clicking here.

This guide is designed to help you find the information you need, or to let you know how to request information.

Availability and Formats

The information we publish through the model scheme is, wherever possible, available on our website. We offer alternative arrangements for people who do not want to, or cannot, access the information online or by inspection at our premises. For example, we can usually arrange to send information to you in paper copy (although there may be a charge for this).

Exempt Information

We will publish the information we hold that falls within the classes of information below. If a document contains information that is exempt under Scotland's freedom of information laws (for example sensitive personal information or a trade secret), we will remove or 'black out' the information before publication and explain why.

Copyright

Where Serco holds the copyright in its published information, the information may be copied or reproduced without formal permission, provided that:

  • it is copied or reproduced accurately;
  • it is not used in a misleading context; and
  • the source of the material is identified.

Charges

There is no charge for downloading information from our website. If we send published information to you, we may ask you to pay the costs of providing it to you e.g., photocopying and postage.

We may charge for unpublished information provided in response to a request for it. Where it would cost us 100 or less to provide the information to you, we will not impose a charge. If it costs us between 100 and 600 to provide the information, we may ask you to pay up to 10% of that part of the cost. So, for example, if it costs us 400, then we may charge up to 30 (i.e. first 100 is free, then we may charge up to 10% of the cost between 100 and 400).

Where it would cost more than 600 to provide information to you then we are not obliged to provide the information. We will advise you if this is likely to be the case.

In the case of requests for a person's own personal data (subject access request), we may charge up to 10 per request.

We are pleased to provide advice and assistance to help requesters frame their requests to reduce the possibility of charges for information.
