The Right to Information Act 2009 (RTI Act), which commenced 1 July 2009, requires us to publish an online disclosure log detailing all valid RTI applications received from 22 February 2013. The disclosure log lists the scopes of valid RTI applications and provides access to information in response to completed RTI access requests.

Access to disclosure log information

If departments and Ministers decide to give access to a document that does not contain the personal information of the applicant, and the applicant accesses the document within the access period (40 business days), departments and Ministers are required to also include in the disclosure log a copy of the document, the name of the applicant, and if access to the document was sought for the benefit or use by an entity other than the applicant, the name of the other entity. These publication requirements are subject to the caveats explained below.

If the applicant does not access the document within the access period, then the details of the document and information about the way in which the document may be accessed will be included in the disclosure log.

Information not included

Documents containing applicants' personal information are not published on the disclosure log. We will also remove information (including individuals' names) from the disclosure log that is required under Section 78B of the RTI Act, including when:

  • the publication of the information is prevented by law; or
  • the information may be defamatory; or
  • publishing the information would unreasonably invade an individual's privacy or cause substantial harm to an entity; or
  • the information is of a confidential nature communicated in confidence; or
  • the information is protected from disclosure under a contract.

Where there are blank pages in a document, due to either the removal of information under Section 78B, or by redaction through the decision-making process for the original RTI application, these will not be included in the disclosure log.

Format of documents

Documents in the disclosure log are available in PDF format. Contact us to discuss alternative format options.

Document availability

Documents are available on the disclosure log for a minimum of 6 months from the date they are published. Once removed, documents are available electronically (e.g. CD or DVD) through us until the original application file is disposed of in accordance with the Public Records Act 2002.
