Where the University considers that information released to an applicant in response to a formal Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) ("GIPA Act") access application would be of interest to other members of the public it must provide the following details about the application in its disclosure log:
- The date the access application was decided;
- A description of the information released; and
- Details of whether any of the information is available to other members of the public, and if so, how it can be accessed.
An applicant or an authorised objector (see section 56 of the GIPA Act) can object to information about an application being included in the disclosure log. The decision-maker may still decide that the information should be included in disclosure log, regardless of any objection. However, that decision is a reviewable decision so the aggrieved person (whether this is the applicant or a third party consulted with about the application) can apply for review of that decision under Part 5 of the GIPA Act.
