Right to information
The right to information (RTI) is the Queensland Government's
approach to giving the community greater access to information. The
Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to
information held by the government, unless on balance it is
contrary to the public interest to provide that information.
This approach is detailed in the Right to Information Act 2009 and the Information Privacy Act 2009.
RTI aims to:
- make more information available
- provide equal access to information across all community
- provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.
RTI is a whole-of-government approach.
