    Default Public Sector or Not?

    Hi All

    Is there a list somewhere to identify which organisation falls under public sector?

    The reason for the question is I have been put forward by the agent to couple of organisation for new role. The agent did mention that it's not public sector but I don't want to take his word at face value.

    Pls can someone guide me to the right place...

    Thanks

    Anyone that the FOI act applies to. If you look at the discussion document Eek posted early doors there is a massive list at the end of there.

    Google finds this as well.

    Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Schedule 1

    12.
    The FOI Acts define the public sector under broad categories (this is not an exhaustive list):
    • Government departments, legislative bodies, armed forces
    • Local government
    • NHS
    • Schools and further and higher education institutions
    • Police
    • Other public bodies (listed in a Schedule including bodies such as The British
      Museum, BBC, Channel 4)
    • Publically owned companies (wholly owned by the Crown and/or the wider
      public sector such as Transport for London)
    The horses mouth is here: https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...FINAL_V3_0.pdf

    Could be interesting if you are unsure.

    About this dataset
    Lists current and former public sector bodies - updated to incorporate classification decisions made
    .

    Huge searchable list in the spreadsheet. This is classification and is not related to FOI so be warned but could be worth a look if anyone is struggling.

    There is a difference between owned and under direct administration... But either way. Eek has answered the point.
