The department is committed to providing the Queensland public with easier access to our information.
The Right to Information Act 2009 strengthens the community's right to access government-held information. The Act:
- gives you a right to apply for access to documents held by government agencies and Ministers
- requires each government agency to publish a publication scheme on its website which may include an online disclosure log
- establishes the Information Commissioner and Right to Information Commissioner to oversee the Right to Information in Queensland.
