Right to Information disclosure log

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Treasury may publish information released in response to a request for assessed disclosure of information made under the RTI Act, where that information is determined by the delegated RTI Officer to be in the broader public interest. Information released in response to Right to Information requests will be published online within 48 hours of being released to the applicant.

This approach makes released information of public interest available to a wider audience and increases Government transparency and accountability.

 

Information in the disclosure log will generally be removed after 12 months, unless the information has enduring public value.

Applicants should note that:

  • if they seek and are granted a waiver of the application fee on the basis of general public interest, and it is determined that the information is in the broader public interest, publication of the released information is likely;
  • their identity will not be published (the category of applicant will be published, ie Member of Parliament, media representative, private individual);
  • a summary of the application will be published, to provide context to the nature of the released information;
  • only information that is considered to be in the broader public interest will be published;
  • no personal information will be published; and
  • information of a commercial or confidential nature will not be published.

Further information is available in the Treasury Information Disclosure Policy and Procedures document.​
