Information access - GIPA

As a member of the public you have a right to access government information. Your right is restricted only when there is an overriding public interest against our disclosing the particular information. 

We are committed to improving openness, transparency and ease of public access to our information under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act), including policies, statistics and reports.

Agency Information Guide

Our agency guide describes the type of information that is either freely available or available on informal request.  It describes other instances where formal application may be made for access and where access is excluded.
