Right To Information

The new Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act) replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (NSW) on 1 July 2010.

A summary of the effect of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 is available

If agencies have any questions relating to GIPA Act compliance, please contact:

The NSW Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the Government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

The Right to Information reforms aim to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals’ privacy.
