What is Freedom of Information?

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act (FOISA) was introduced in 2002 to make the information held by public bodies more accessible. Anyone can access the information held by Scottish public authorities and the Scottish Public Pensions Agency has a duty to reply to Freedom of Information requests within 20 working days.

Our online guide to the information we hold

SPPA’s online guide to information has been developed in line with the Scottish Information Commissioner's model publication scheme and describes how we work and the information we routinely publish.

Commercial publications and open data

Please note that SPPA does not make any publications available on a commercial basis and currently does not publish any open data.

You can find out more about your Freedom of Information rights from the Scottish Information Commissioner.
