Access to information

Government Information (Public Access) - GIPA

On 1 July 2010 the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 came into effect, replacing the former freedom of information law.

The Act:

  • creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community expectations of more open and transparent government
  • encourages government agencies to proactively release government information. 

To apply to the Office of the Children's Guardian for formal access to government information under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, please complete this application form and return to the Office of the Children's Guardian. (PDF 55.8KB)
