The NSW Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Tydd, has released a report on the operation of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act) for 2015–2016, which has been tabled in Parliament.

Under section 37 of the Government Information (Information Commissioner) Act 2009 (GIIC Act), the Information Commissioner is required to provide Parliament with an annual report on the operation of the GIPA Act. 

The Report examines the performance of over 200 government agencies, provides important guidance to policy makers and agency heads, and promotes greater transparency for the NSW community.

The Report indicates that practices across all sectors regulated by the GIPA Act vary, and there are both positive trends and some issues for agencies and the IPC to address in order to realise the objects of the GIPA Act in advancing an open, accountable and fair democratic system of government.
