    Higher education sector panel sets to work

    The impact of the Freedom of Information Act on the higher education sector was brought into focus with the first meeting of the ICO's higher education sector panel on 27 January at University UK in London.
    The panel has been set up by the ICO to address freedom of information issues specifically relating to the higher education sector. The panel includes representatives from Universities UK, the Joint Information Systems Committee, the Research Information Network, the Association of University Legal Practitioners and the Association of Heads of University Administration, as well as representatives from the University of East Anglia, the University of Kent and Glyndwr University.
    The panel discussed plans for higher education institutions to improve their publication schemes to meet their requirements under the Freedom of Information Act. The group also agreed to set up a research subpanel which will produce specific guidance explaining the sort of information that should and shouldn't be disclosed in response to information requests.
    The next sector panel meeting will take place in May.
