The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA) creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community expectations of more open and transparent government. It encourages the routine and proactive release of government information. To find out more about your rights to information see the Information and Privacy Commission website.
IPART supports the proactive release of information about its work and encourages members of the public and stakeholders to make submissions for the Tribunal’s consideration.
This website provides comprehensive information on IPART’s functions and the various kinds of information we hold. The following links relate to IPART’s obligations under the GIPA Act:

Applying for access to information
An IPART Right to Information Officer will formally access applications.
For further assistance, or to make a formal GIPA application, please contact us via email email@example.com or on (02) 9290 8400.
To make a formal access application, you must pay us an application fee of $30. We may also charge a further $30 per hour of processing (e.g. searching for information, consulting third parties, or making decisions about documents), and may ask for an advance deposit based on the estimated processing charges.
Under the GIPA Act, you may be eligible for a discount of 50% if you can demonstrate that you suffer financial hardship, you are a full-time student or a not-for-profit organisation, or that the information you are requesting is of special benefit to the public. If you are requesting your own personal information, the application fee will cover the first 20 hours of processing. The Information and Privacy Commission has published fact sheets about the GIPA application process.
