Open Access Information

Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) the University is required to publish open access information on its website, unless to do so would impose unreasonable costs. It can also be made available in any other way provided at least one of the ways open access information is made publicly available is free of charge.

Open access information includes:

  • Policy documents;
  • An Agency Information Guide;
  • A Register of Government Contracts;
  • A Disclosure Log of the basic details of information that we believe is likely to be of public interest that has been released in response to formal access applications;
  • The University's record of open access information that it does not make publicly available on the basis of an overriding public interest against disclosure*; and
  • Information about the University contained in any document tabled in Parliament by or on behalf of the University (other than any document tabled by order of either House of Parliament. See the University's Publications tab for further information.
