Mandatory Disclosure

Unpublished Open Access Information

When deciding whether or not to release open access information, UOW is required by the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (“GIPA Act”) to consider whether there is an overriding public interest against disclosure (section 6).

UOW is required under the GIPA Act to provide a record of the open access information that it does not make available to the public on the basis of an overriding public interest against disclosure (section 6(5)).

As UOW makes decisions about open access information that may not be disclosed due to an overriding public interest, it will publish this information on this web page.
