Let's try this one again.
"Every organisation covered by the Freedom of Information Act ("the Act") has a legal duty to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme."
The BBC's accountability commitment has four elements. Publishing salaries and expenses for its top managers, which it largely meets; Statements of Programme Policy, which are supposed to come every July, but stopped in 2014/15; Freedom of Information - the publication scheme by which Auntie shares information shared with others through FOI requests - frozen in 2014/15; Quarterly Audience information, again stopped happening in June 2015.
There's quite a lot of detail in the BBC's Publication scheme - but very little publication. I wonder if someone should draw this to the attention of the new Non-Execs.
"The BBC is committed to:
Proactively publish or otherwise make available as a matter of routine, information which is held by the organisation and falls within the classifications listed in the 'Classes' section.
Specify the information which is held by the organisation and falls within the classifications listed in the 'Classes' section.
Proactively publish or otherwise make available as a matter of routine, information in line with the statements contained within this scheme.
Produce and publish the methods by which the specific information is made routinely available so that it can be easily identified and accessed by members of the public.
Review and update on a regular basis the information that the organisation makes available under this scheme.
Produce a schedule of any fees charged for access to information which is made proactively available.
Making this Publication Scheme available to the public."
