Legal requirement 1.1 Adopting a publication scheme is a requirement of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. This Act promotes greater openness and accountability across the public sector by requiring all public authorities to make information available proactively, through a publication scheme. 1.2 Public authorities are defined in the Act and include universities and the act also applies to companies wholly owned by at least two public authorities. The act therefore applies to The University of Manchester Innovation Centre Limited. 2. The Publication Scheme 2.1 A publication scheme is a document which describes the information a public authority publishes, or intends to publish. In this context, publish means to make information available, routinely. These descriptions are called classes of information. The scheme is not a list of the actual publications, because this will change as new material is published or existing material revised. It is, however, the public authoritys commitment to make available the information described. 2.2 A publication scheme must set out the classes, or categories, of information published. It must also make clear how the information described can be accessed and whether or not charges will be made. 3. Who we are 3.1 The University of Manchester is recognised as one of the global leaders in academic research with 65% of research activity judged to be world leading or "internationally excellent" (2008 Research Assessment Exercise). This prolific research activity forms part of the largest academic campus in Europe and produces world-leading breakthroughs. 3.2 The principal role of The University of Manchester Innovation Centre Limited is to act as a management company for the University of Manchesters incubator buildings in connection with both biotechnology and high-tech activities. 4. Accessing information covered by the publication scheme 4.1 The classes of information we publish are described in the second part of the scheme. 4.2 Next to each class we have indicated the manner in which the information described will be available. There will be no charge for information covered by the publication scheme. To request information available through our publication scheme please contact: The Company Secretary UMIC Incubator Building 48 Grafton Street Manchester M13 9NT Tel: 0161 603 7600 or Fax 0161 606 7300 5. What about information not covered by the publication scheme 5.1 From 1 January 2005 information not made available through the publication scheme may be requested. 5.2 Requests will have to be made in writing and the Company will normally have 20 working days to respond. We may charge a fee. We will not be required to release information to which an exemption in the Act legitimately applies. 6. Feedback 6.1 It is important that this publication scheme meets your needs. If you find the scheme difficult to understand, please let us know. We also welcome suggestions as to how our scheme might be improved. Any questions, comments or complaints about this scheme should be sent in writing to the Company Secretary at the address in 4.3 above. 6.2 If we are unable to resolve any complaint, you can complain to the Information Commissioner, the independent body who oversees the Freedom of Information Act: Office of the Information Commissioner Wycliffe House Water Lane Wilmslow Cheshire SK9 5AF 7.
