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.
Our disclosure log is a record of information that the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation has released, often in response to a specific request from an individual or organisation, that the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation thinks could also be of interest to other members of the public.
Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, certain information is required by law to be available on our website, free of charge. This is called "open access information" and includes our policy documents, disclosure log and register of government contract.
Proactive release is the release of information by an agency, in an appropriate manner and free of charge (or at lowest reasonable cost). This is a list of the documents release as part of the register.
