What does it cost for Freedom of Information? In accordance with the Act, National Museums Scotland may charge for handling a Freedom of Information request. If the information costs the Museum less than £100 to provide, it will be supplied free of charge. Requests costing £100 - £600 will be provided at a charge of 10% of the cost above £100 to a maximum charge of £50 to the applicant. If the cost to the Museum of provision will be more than £600, then National Museums Scotland is not obliged to supply the information. The Museum will consider each case individually in these circumstances and may choose to provide the information.
