Accessing OFS Information
To promote open, accountable, fair and effective government in NSW, members of the public have a right to access government information. This right is restricted only when there is an overriding public interest against disclosing the particular information.
The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (NSW) on 1 July 2010. It established a comprehensive system for public access to government information.
The Office of Finance and Services publishes a large volume of material on this website.
Our disclosure log is a record of information that the Office of Finance and Services has released, often in response to a specific request from an individual or organisation, that the Office of Finance and Services thinks could also be of interest to other members of the public.
Policy documents are those that guide our decisions, actions and procedures in fulfilling our public functions.
All contracts the Office of Finance and Services enters into with the private sector valued over $150,000 are required to be recorded in the register of government contracts, which is published on the Government tender's website.
Proactive release is the release of information by an agency, in an appropriate manner and free of charge (or at lowest reasonable cost).
From time to time other documents are tabled in the Parliament concerning the Office of Finance and Services.
The NSW Office of Finance and Services (OFS) Publication Guide tells you in general terms:
