RTI Disclosure Log – July 2019 to current

The Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) (RTI Act) gives the public a right to access government held information. All valid Right to Information (RTI) applications received by Queensland Treasury will be published on the disclosure log.

How does Queensland Treasury manage their Disclosure Log?

Information will be published on the disclosure log in three stages:

Stage one:

As soon as practical following receipt of a valid RTI application, Queensland Treasury will publish:

  • The date the application was made; and
  • A description of the information requested.

The status field of the disclosure log will contain the words “application being processed”.

Stage two:

Queensland Treasury will wait until the applicant accesses the information and all appeal rights have expired before publishing the information in stage three. However, we will provide a status update to help the public track the application.

Stage three:

Once the applicant has accessed the information and all appeal rights have expired, Queensland Treasury will publish the following information:

  • The name of the applicant (provided publication does not infringe privacy); and
  • The name of any entity seeking to use or benefit from the information (provided publication does not infringe privacy); and
  • A link to a copy of the documents released (if appropriate).

The RTI Act prevents Queensland Treasury from publishing some information. Where this has occurred, a black box will be placed over the information and list the relevant section of the legislation relied on to remove the information.

It will look like this:

Use the table below to identify why the information has been removed:

RTI Act section Reason for removal
s. 78B(2)(a) Publication of the information is prevented by law
s. 78B(2)(b) Publication of the information is prevented as it may be defamatory
s. 78B(2)(c) Publication of the information would unreasonably invade an individual’s privacy
s. 78B(2)(d) Publication of the information would reveal confidential information
s. 78B(2)(e) Publication of the information would cause substantial harm to an entity

 

If the applicant does not access the document within the access period, then details of the documents and information about how you can access this information will be included in the disclosure log.

Links to documents older than 6 months old will be removed from the disclosure log however, access to the information can still be obtained by emailing rtiadmin@treasury.qld.gov.au or calling (07) 3035 1863.
