Information Access Resources for Public Sector Agencies

Public Sector Agencies in NSW have a legal obligation under the Government (Public Information) Access Act 2009 (GIPA Act) to assist citizens with obtaining access to most government information openly and freely, unless there is an overriding public interest consideration against disclosure. This applies to government agencies, Ministers and their staff, local councils, universities, and State Owned Corporations,

The Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) has developed a number of resources to assist public sector agencies in NSW with your obligations under the GIPA Act.
