Applicants should be aware that the GLA is subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR). This means that everybody has a general right of access to information that the GLA holds, subject to certain exemptions provided by the legislation.

Please note, it is insufficient to include a statement of confidentiality encompassing all the information provided in the response.
The GLA shall take such statements into consideration in the event that it receives a request pursuant to the Act which relates to the information provided by the interested party. The GLA will not respond to any requests that ask for commercially sensitive information, nor will the GLA respond to requests where the question seeks ‘an opinion’.
The GLA is committed to protecting the public funds that it administers. The GLA is therefore determined to prevent, deter and detect all forms of fraud and corruption committed against it both internally and externally.
