In March 2018, we established a Public Access Agency Reference Group, which comprises representatives from a number of agencies of varying sizes and representing various government sectors.
The purpose of the Reference Group is to provide a forum for us to engage with agencies about our work and agencies’ experiences, operating environments and ideas regarding the operation and administration of the FOI Act.
This exchange of information informs our initiatives to support agencies in administering the FOI Act.
The Reference Group meets quarterly and operates under Terms of Reference. It is attended and chaired by the Information Commissioner and Public Access Deputy Commissioner.
