City, University of London’s Publication Scheme, produced in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, states that the approved minutes of the meetings of Council and Senate are routinely published on the web.  Their agendas are also published on the web, if possible, in advance of the meeting. The Council minutes can only be agreed at the next meeting of Council.

“Open” and “Restricted” Council papers, with the exception of the minutes of sub-committees, will normally be made available on the Staff Hub following the circulation of the Council meeting highlights to all staff via email.

“Open” Senate papers are published on the web and “Restricted” and “Closed” papers are available to staff via the web using a password.

The agenda, papers and minutes for the other Sub-Committees of Council are not published on the website or Staff Hub.

“Restricted” and “Closed” papers are exempt under the Freedom of Information Act and will not be made available to a member of the public making an FOI request.  Staff will have access to the “Restricted” papers of Council and Senate. “Restricted” classifies a paper that is “Closed” but has been made available to staff. Staff should treat “Restricted” papers as confidential and not to share or discuss them with anyone other than City, University of London staff. “Open” papers will normally be made available to anyone lodging an FOI request. Papers may be “partly closed” or “partly restricted” and the open and closed/restricted elements are treated separately from one another following the processes for each type of paper laid out here. The Committee may change the classification of papers on the agenda at the meeting at which they are considered.
