To promote open, accountable, fair and effective government in NSW, members of the public have a right to access government information. This right is restricted only when there is an overriding public interest against disclosing the particular information.
The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (NSW) on 1 July 2010. It established a comprehensive system for public access to government information.
How can I access IRO information?
Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, certain information is required by law to be available on our website, free of charge. This is called 'open access information' and includes our policy documents, disclosure log and register of government contracts.
Our disclosure log is a record of information that IRO has released, often in response to a specific request from an individual or organisation, that IRO thinks could also be of interest to other members of the public.There are currently no responses on IRO's disclosure log.
Our Agency Information Guide is published in accordance with the requirements of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act). The GIPA Act gives you the right to access government information. The guide details the information the IRO holds and how to access it.
