The Becta website will be closing on 31 January 2011.

Most of our online resources are now available under the Open Government Licence for anyone to re-use. Find out more.

Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) took effect on 1 January 2005 and applies to all information held by Becta. The Act is intended to encourage greater openness and transparency in Government by increased disclosure of information in response to public request. It applies to all recorded information, including paper, email, documents and databases

Becta is now in the final stages of closure, following the Government's announcement of May 24th 2010. While we will continue to respond to Freedom of Information requests, you may consider it more appropriate at this stage to direct requests to the Department for Education.

In this section you can find out about Becta's freedom of information (FOI) responsibilities and gain access to Becta publications. A good start is to read the information page where you can find out all about Becta, Becta's FOI responsibilities, Becta's publication scheme, how to request information and fees, and how to make a complaint or provide feedback.
