Access to information
The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) (GIPA Act) provides a comprehensive system for public access to government information.
The objective of the GIPA Act is to open government information to the public by
- authorising and encouraging the proactive public release of government information by agencies
- giving members of the public an enforceable right to access government information
- providing that access to government information is restricted only when there is an overriding public interest against disclosure.
The system for public access to government information is overseen by the Information Commissioner.
