The Strategic Investment Board Ltd is a transparent and open organisation and is committed to providing public access to the information it holds.
Information can be accessed by using the ‘Search’ facility on our website or by looking at the relevant pages under the ‘Available Information’ section of this website. However, if you cannot find the required information on our website you can make a request for information (see below) under the further provisions of the Freedom of Information or Environmental Information Regulations.
If you are requesting information we hold about you personally this would be dealt with under the Data Protection Act 1998. This would include anything limited to you as a person. Under the Data Protection Act we have 40 working days to provide the information you ask for.
Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Publication Scheme
In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) public sector organisations have to proactively publish information whenever possible. This information should be listed under a ‘publication scheme’. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has introduced a model publication scheme that all public sector organisations should adopt.
This publication scheme commits an authority to make information available (where it holds it) to the public as part of its normal business activities. SIB has adopted the ICO’s model publication scheme that can be found on the ICO website.
Information on the SIB website can be downloaded free of charge. For information that is not available through the website there will be no charge applied. It is SIB’s policy that, where possible, information created and stored electronically will be provided electronically. Hard copy versions of information available through the website will not be provided routinely on request.
Requests will be dealt with as quickly as possible and within the statutory timescales (20 working days for FOI). All requests for information can be made through the Feedback link at the bottom of the page or should be addressed as appropriate to:
