government response details
Schedule 1 to the FOI Act lists bodies that are covered by the FOI Act. For a body to be added to this schedule they must meet certain conditions set out in Section 4 of the FOI Act.Briefly, they must be established by either a Minister of the Crown, a Government Department or by legislation, and appointments to the body must be made by the same. Under Section 5 of the FOI Act, the Government can designate as a public authority any body which appears to exercise functions of a public nature or is providing a function of a public authority under contract. Universities UK do not meet the above conditions and are therefore notcovered by the FOI Act. The Government has currently no plans to alter the criteria for bodies that should be covered by the FOI Act.Cabinet Office
