FOI Publication Scheme

Published: 4 December 2018
From: Department of Finance

Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish as much information as possible.

The purpose of this process is to provide information about the operations of the Department and the Minister for Finance in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis.

It also allows for the publication of information outside of FOI where the provision of information is not prohibited by law.

The Department of Finance will be proactive and will publish material regularly under this scheme. The Department is open to suggestions on the types and content of material that could be published regularly under this scheme in addition to the published material already available on the Department’s website.

Suggestions for additional publications can be made to foi@finance.gov.ie

The section 8 scheme of the Department is set out in this document and it follows the format of the model publication scheme as approved by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform.

The sections are linked to individual pages on the Department’s website rather than to specific documents and material relevant to the specific section can be found on each webpage.
