Macquarie University is required by the GIPA Act to provide a disclosure log with details of information released under a formal access application. Where the information released may be of interest to other members of the public, the disclosure log will include the following details in relation to the application:
- the date the access application was decided
- a description of the information released
- whether any of the information is available to other members of the public, and
- if so available, how it can be accessed.
All requests for access are recorded, but this openly accessible log does not provide details of requests for information that are not made publicly available on the basis of an overriding public interest against disclosure (OPIAD). To determine if there is an OPIAD, the public interest test is applied (refer to the IPC guidelines for Public Interest Test ).
An applicant can object, when making an access application, or subsequently, to information concerning the application being included in the disclosure log.
