What is freedom of information?

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Vic) was created to promote openness, accountability and transparency in the Victorian public service by giving the public the right to access government information.

The object of the Act is to ‘extend as far as possible the right of the community to access documents in the possession of the Government of Victoria’.

All members of the public have the right to apply for access to documents held by Ministers and agencies in Victoria including departments, statutory agencies, hospitals, schools, TAFEs and universities.
