Class 6 –       How we procure goods and services from external providers

Class 7 –       How we are performing

Class 9 –        Open data

Available information

We’ve produced a guide which explains the information available in each class, how you can access it and if there are any charges:

The purpose of this Guide to Information is to:

  • allow you to see what information is available (and what is not available) in relation to each class
  • state what charges may be applied
  • explain how you can find the information easily
  • provide contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing the information
  • explain how to request information we hold that has not been published.

All document links open in a new window.

The information we publish through the scheme is made available online wherever possible. We may be able to arrange for you to inspect information at our office or have paper copies sent to you if necessary.

Finding other information

You can submit a Freedom of Information request if the information you want isn’t available through our Publication Scheme.

We’ll be able to tell you if we hold the information and if we can supply it to you.
