The NSW Treasury’s Privacy Management Plan and Guidelines (the Plan), provides practical guidance for NSW Treasury staff on requirements of section 33 of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (the PPIP Act) for managing personal information.
At its position at the centre of government, NSW Treasury holds and uses a wide range of personal, private and confidential information. This information is integral to its function as the lead on economic, jobs and investment conversations.
The privacy rights of citizens, stakeholders, and staff are protected under the PPIP Act and the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2001 (the HRIP Act) which is reflected in the Plan.
The Plan supports NSW Treasury’s commitment to open and accountable government in accordance with the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (the GIPA Act), while at the same time recognising the privacy rights of individuals. The Plan applies to all staff within NSW Treasury, to ensure privacy obligations are met to a high standard.
