The NCA is committed to transparency and to:
- being open to the public;
- being accountable for our performance and use of public money; and,
- raising awareness of the threat caused by serious and organised crime
Transparency builds trust with the public and promotes best practice, by making us accountable for our actions. It also helps to raise awareness of the threats posed by serious and organised crime.
While the NCA is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, we have a statutory obligation to ensure that we are transparent (Crime and Courts Act s6) and to make arrangements for publishing information about the exercise of NCA functions and other matters relating to the NCA.
We will therefore seek to publish as much information as possible about the work of the agency, unless there is a good reason not to do so.
