GAD: access to information policy

This policy sets out how GAD will handle requests for information under the Freedom of Information Act



It is the policy of the Government Actuary’s Department to carry out the spirit and requirements of the Freedom of Information Act in a manner which:

  • recognises the duty to inform as the essential principle underlying the legislation;

  • discloses to requesters the maximum information possible which is not injurious to the public and private interests identified in the exemptions in the Act and does so in the most timely and consistent manner given the nature and scope of the request;

  • ensures that fees permitted under the Act for the provision of information are in line with The National Archives fees regulations available here:
