What is Open Access Information?

The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 aims to maintain and advance a system of responsible and proactive release of government information by using agency websites.

Open access information includes a range of information held by agencies, for example:

  • Policy documents
  • Annual reports
  • Guidelines
  • Register of government contracts.

How do I find information?

You can browse the Aboriginal Affairs NSW website to see if the information you need is already publicly available.

How to access information held by Aboriginal Affairs NSW 

Following Machinery of Government in 2019, all GIPA requests must be made directly to the Premier's Department Information and Privacy Unit who processes GIPA application on behalf of Aboriginal Affairs NSW. 

If you wish to lodge an application under GIPA, contact the Premier's Department Information and Privacy Unit.
