The GIPA Act 2009 requires NSW government agencies to make certain types of government information publicly available, unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure.  This information is called "open access information".

Section 18 of the GIPA Act and section 5(2) of the GIPA Regulation identifies ten types of open access information that government agencies are required to make available to the public.  

NSW Treasury's open access information

Our Agency Information Guide describes:

  • our functions and structure
  • how our functions affect members of the public
  • how members of the public can participate in the formulation of Treasury policy
  • the types of government information we hold
  • the types of information that we make available to the public, and how
  • the fees and charges that will need to be paid to access different types of information

Our Policy Documents guide our decisions, actions, and procedures in fulfilling our public functions. NSW Treasury Policy Documents are located in the document library.

A disclosure log is a record containing details of government information already released under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act). A disclosure log is part of the open access information that agencies are required to make available and is a requirement under Section 25 of the GIPA Act.  

NSW Treasury has determined that the information referred to in its disclosure log may be of interest to other members of the public.  

Please note that the disclosure log lists the information requested at the time and may not be the most up-to-date version of the information.

For access to any of the information listed in the disclosure log below, please contact the Information Access and Governance Unit.

The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 NSW requires all agencies to make available, free of charge on their websites, their “open access information”.

However, there is an overriding obligation under the Act not to publish any specific “open access information” if there is an overriding public interest against disclosure of that particular information.

Whenever NSW Treasury decides that particular “open access information” should not be publicly available, a record of the decision is made.

NSW Treasury has not made a decision that there is an overriding public interest against disclosure of any of its open access information. Should such a decision be made it will be recorded here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mandatory open access to government information under the GIPA Act 2009:

  • ensures NSW government agencies push information into the public domain
  • provides you and other members of the public with immediate access to government information
  • promotes consistent and transparent information-sharing practices across NSW government agencies

All open access information is available free of charge on an agency’s website.  If this imposes an unreasonable cost on the agency, the agency can charge a fee but it must provide an alternative method of access that is free of charge.  In other words, we will only charge you a fee to access open access information when the open access information is available for free in at least one other form.

Yes.  In some circumstances, we may partially or fully withhold open access information because, on balance, it would be contrary to the public interest to make the information openly accessible.  If we withhold open access information for this reason, we make it known on our website in our Record of Open Access Information Not Publicly Available which is listed above.

Browsing or searching our website is the most effective means of finding open access information.  In addition to the links on this page, you can go to the documents library.
