Right to information

From Freedom Of Information to GIPA


The NSW Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (“GIPA Act”) has replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 and introduces a new ‘right to information’ regime to NSW. The new regime is designed to meet community expectations for more open and transparent government, making information more readily available. It provides a presumption in favour of disclosure unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure.


As part of the Act, RDANI is required to maintain a publication guide that:

* Describes the structure and functions of RDANI.
* Describes the ways in which our functions affect members of the public.
* Identifies the various kinds of information held by RDANI.
* Identifies the kinds of information RDANI makes, or will make, publicly available.


The RDANI Publication Guide is available for download below.
