GIPA Formal Request

29 October 2020

If government information is not available through the mandatory open access and proactive release pathways, and your GIPA informal request for information has been declined, you can make a formal request for information.

Because there are other pathways to accessing government information, and because a formal request for information involves a degree of red tape, fees and charges, this fourth and final pathway for accessing government information should be a last-resort option.
