Access to information

How to access information Disclosure log

After 20 years of governing how citizens can seek information from their Government, the Freedom of Information Act 1989 has been repealed and replaced with the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPAA).

The GIPA Act creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community’s expectations of more open and transparent government. It encourages the routine and proactive release of government information, including information held by providers of goods and services contracted by government agencies.

How members of the public may access NRJO information

Members of the public seeking access to NRJO information should initially search this section of the website.

If the information is not referenced in this section, the public should contact the NRJO Right to Information Officer, detailed as follows:

Executive Officer

The Officer will either advise where the information is located or request that an Informal Access Request be made via email. There is no charge for this request, however appropriate photocopying charges of obtained copies of information may apply.

The Officer will discuss the method of supply of the information, including likely timeframe.

In limited circumstances, the Right to Information Officer will inform an applicant that their access to information will require the lodgement of a Formal Access Application.

Disclosure Log

Northern Rivers Joint Organisation’s disclosure log (PDF) is a record of information that NRJO must release under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act), and forms part of the open access information agencies are required to make publicly available. Information that is released as a result of a GIPA application is listed in the log if the NRJO is of the view that the information may also be of interest to other members of the public.
