Mandatory Open Access Information

29 October 2020

The GIPA Act 2009 requires NSW government agencies to make certain types of government information publicly available, unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure. This information is called “open access information”.

Section 18 of the GIPA Act and section 5(2) of the GIPA Regulation identifies types of open access information that government agencies are required to make available to the public.

Disclosure Log

A disclosure log is a record containing details of government information already released under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act). A disclosure log is part of the open access information that agencies are required to make available and is a requirement under Section 25 of the GIPA Act.

Destination NSW has determined that the information referred to in its Disclosure Log (PDF 657 kb) may be of interest to other members of the public.

Please note that the disclosure log lists the information requested at the time and may not be the most up-to-date version of the information.

Record of Open Access Information not publicly available

The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 NSW requires all agencies to make available, free of charge on their websites, their “open access information”.

However, there is an overriding obligation under the Act not to publish any specific “open access information” if there is an overriding public interest against disclosure of that particular information.

Whenever Destination NSW decides that particular “open access information” should not be publicly available, a record of the decision is made.

Destination NSW has not made a decision that there is an overriding public interest against disclosure of any of its open access information. Should such a decision be made it will be recorded here.
