This open Wiki page is intended to collect together proposals, campaign asks and evidence on opening up Scotland's public institutions.
We hope the Open Government Scotland network can use this to develop letters, campaigns, awareness raising or to support meetings with influencers.
Why do we need this?
- Concerns raised by Scottish Parliament and others about the transparency of the Scottish Police Authority has garnered media attention
- Concerns raised by mainstream media journalists in Scotland around handling of Freedom of Information requests by Scottish Government
- Opportunities to use Scotland's Pioneer status, and Scottish Government's Open Government Action plan to take a step up in transparency of public institutions this year.
