Access to Information We Hold
Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) we are committed to improving openness, transparency and ease of access to our information.
Restrictions apply to accessing information only when there is an overriding public interest against our disclosure of that particular information.
The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) provides for government information to be released in four ways:
- Mandatory proactive release
- Authorised proactive release
- Informal release
- Release subject to a formal access application
Formal applications for access to information should be a last resort. In most circumstances you should not have to make a formal application to access information that we hold.
