The Freedom of Information [Scotland] Act 2002 [FOISA] offers new opportunities to Scotland’s public bodies to generate strategic and operational level organisational change centred upon the management and flow of information. Our research findings show, however, that whilst FOISA is perceived as contributing to change within these bodies, it is not proving to be a catalyst for radical strategic transformation. Instead, the tendency is towards its absorption within the existing administrative-political culture embedded within Scotland’s public bodies.
