Right to information (GIPA)

In New South Wales, the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (the GIPA Act) replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (NSW) on 1 July 2010.

The GIPA Act:

  • requires UTS to release specific types of information online
  • encourages proactive release of other information held by UTS
  • can provide an enforceable right for you to access information, except where there is an overriding public interest against disclosure.

Access to information is managed in accordance with the GIPA Act.
