Interim procedures for disclosing information released in response to Right to Information Act 2009 requests in Tasmania were announced on Tuesday 9 June 2015.
Certain information released in response to Right to Information requests will be published online within 48 hours of being released to the applicant. This only applies to applications received after 9 June 2015. Detailed policies reflecting this change will soon be available.
The new approach makes information released to an applicant available to a wider audience and increases Government transparency and accountability.
Applicants should note that:
