Information and Privacy Advisory Committee (IPAC)
IPAC is an advisory body to the Information Commissioner and the Privacy Commissioner.
IPAC’s primary focus is to support the IPC’s statutory and strategic information access and privacy priorities and obligations. Its advice will sometimes raise wider issues of basic human rights (employment, basic freedoms etc) and other legal and ethical issues. The focus of IPAC’s work will be ensuring principles of fairness, transparency and accountability are the hallmarks of the approach in NSW to information access and privacy.
IPAC supports both the IPC’s statutory role and responsibilities on information access and privacy and the need to steadily improve information access and privacy performance across the NSW public sector (leadership, skills and capability).
