Freedom of Information - Publication Scheme
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the Act) requires Scottish public authorities to produce and maintain a publication scheme which has the approval of the Scottish Information Commissioner, and publish information in accordance with that scheme. Authorities are under a legal obligation to:
• Publish the classes of information that they make routinely available
• Tell the public how to access the information and what it might cost
Bon Accord Care and Bon Accord Support Services are subject to the Act because they are “publicly-owned company”, as defined in section 6 of the Act. Bon Accord Care and Bon Accord Support Services are wholly owned by Aberdeen City Council.
Bon Accord Care and Bon Accord Support Services have adopted the Model Publication Scheme produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner.
The Commissioner’s Model Publication Scheme (the MPS) was approved on 01 November 2018 and updated on 26 March 2021.
You can also contact us at the address below if you prefer a copy of the Model Publication Scheme, or this Guide to Information, to be provided in a different format.

The purpose of the Guide to Information is to:
• allow you to see what information is available (and what is not available) for Bon Accord Care in relation to each class
• state what charges may be applied
• explain how you can find the information easily
• provide contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing the information
• explain how to request information we hold that has not been published
Alongside the Act, the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (the EIRs) provide a separate right of access to the environmental information that we hold. This Guide to Information also contains details of the environmental information that we routinely make available.

Company Gender Pay Gap Information
All companies with over 250 employees must now publish set gender pay gap information on the Government's online reporting service and also on their own company website. The information regarding the gender pay differences within the company is as follows:
All data is derived from actual payroll information at March 2023 and for Bon Accord Care Ltd.
Mean Gender Pay Gap
Mean male hourly pay is 7.6% higher than mean male hourly pay.
Median Gender Pay Gap
Median male hourly pay is 5.6% higher than median male hourly pay.
No member of staff received a bonus payment in 2022/23. It is not company policy to pay bonuses to staff regardless of gender. As a consequence, the bonus information requested by the Government online reporting service was a nil response.
