You can expect the college, in its response, to:

  • State whether it holds the type of information requested and, if so
  • Subject to certain exemptions (including Data Protection legislation), communicate it to you.

  • What we spend and how we spend it
  • What our priorities are and how we are doing
  • How we make our decisions
  • Our policies and procedures
  • Lists and registers
