Right to information (GIPA)

Right to information (GIPA)

The objective of the NSW Government Information (Public Access) Act 2019 (GIPA) is to make information openly available to the public by:

  • authorising and encouraging the proactive release of government information to the public by agencies
  • giving members of the public an enforceable right to access government information
  • providing access to government information unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure.

Right to Information is Macquarie University’s approach to giving the community access to information we hold.

Macquarie University is committed to promoting clear, honest and open communication. Much information is openly accessible on the University’s website. If you cannot find the information you want by searching the website, you can either contact the relevant area of the University directly, or email the Right to Information officers at gipa@mq.edu.au

You can find more information about the purposes of the GIPA Act on the website of the Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC). The IPC’s role is to promote public awareness and understanding of the right to information law. IPC provides a range of resources and assistance to the general public. The IPC also has the power to review decisions made by government agencies and to deal with complaints.
