A draft disposal schedule [PDF, 192 KB] for the office of the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security has been developed and we are asking for feedback from interested parties to ensure that we have considered a range of views.
Every organisation creates and stores information which may have some future value and should therefore be retained. A disposal schedule records the types of information held, the value of that information and at what point in the future a decision has to be made about whether it should be retained or destroyed.
The Inspector-General must produce a written report after concluding an inquiry. The report is sent to the Minister responsible for the relevant intelligence and security agency and the Director-General of the agency. In some cases the report is also sent to the Prime Minister and the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament.
Much of the information the Inspector-General deals with is classified and cannot be made publicly available. As far as possible, however, the Inspector-General endeavours to produce versions of reports which can be made available to the public on this website.
The Inspector-General publishes a work programme and an annual report each year.
The Inspector-General publishes policies about how she exercises her functions, powers and duties.
