Acting NSW Information Commissioner publishes revised learning module to assist compliance with contract registers under the GIPA Act

The Acting NSW Information Commissioner has updated the learning module on contract registers to provide guidance to entities regulated by the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act).

Following the IPC’s audit of universities’ compliance with contract registers in 2015, a regulatory risk with contract reporting was identified and the IPC committed to providing guidance to assist all regulated entities to comply with the requirements under the GIPA Act.

This resource has been revised in consultation with our stakeholders to assist agencies in understanding how to comply with their contracts register obligations under the GIPA Act.

The learning module is available on the IPC’s E-learning Portal – click here to register to complete Contracts Registers under the GIPA Act.

We hope you find this resource and our other e-learning resources useful and we welcome your feedback – please contact the IPC via free call 1800 472 679 or email
