GIPA - RIGHT TO INFORMATION
The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (or the GIPA Act) came into effect on 1 July 2010 and replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989. The GIPA Act is designed to meet community expectations of a more open and transparent Government for the people of NSW.
The Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) has been established to promote public awareness and understanding of the new GIPA Act. The Commissioner also monitors government agencies' compliance with the GIPA Act.
