INTRODUCTION

1. 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 Manchester Incubator Company 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 authority’s 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

The University of Manchester is recognised as one of the global leaders in academic research with a total of 37 research subjects of "international excellence" (2001 Research Assessment Exercise).

The role of The University of Manchester Incubator Company Limited is to provide facilities management for the Manchester Incubator Building and the Core Technology Facility.

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
