The Government has implemented disclosure logs for all State Government agencies to enable information that may be of interest to the public to be readily identified and accessed by the community at large. This supports transparency and accountability of the Government.
The policy governing disclosure logs requires agencies to publish on its website a list detailing information that has been released by the agency under the FOI Act in response to an FOI request received after 1 October 2017.
Agencies are required to make available on their websites information and documents that have already been disclosed to an FOI applicant that:
- are not related to the personal affairs of an individual; and
- could not be claimed as exempt documents/material pursuant to Schedule 1 of the FOI Act, when being publicly released; and
- could not be considered defamatory or a breach of confidentiality or reasonably be anticipated to cause harm to a person.
Additionally, Premier and Cabinet Circular PC045 Disclosure Logs for Non-Personal Information released through Freedom of Information provides that further redactions may be made to determinations published on the disclosure log where that information relates to material - that is prevented by law from being published; could be considered an unreasonable exposure of personal or business affairs; may be defamatory; could cause substantial harm if disclosed; has been received in confidence from a third party and/or which identifies that third party; and agency employee names and contact information.
In some cases, the documents may be too large to upload online. In these cases, a copy of the determination may be available by contacting the agency FOI officer by Email HousingFreedomofInformation@sa.gov.au
Please note: the information listed on this disclosure log only relates to the current and previous calendar years. Any request for access to information previously published and no longer listed, should be directed to the Senior Freedom of Information Officer via the above email address.
