Information access is where members of the public can access records, reports and other types of information that is of public interest restricted only where there is an overriding public interest against disclosure under the Government Information (Public) Access Act 2009 (GIPA Act).
It also provides links to information about how members of the public can participate in the department's functions and in the formulation of policy.
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.
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.
