Right to Information and Publication Scheme
About Right to Information
The Right to Information Act 2009 (RTI Act) provides a right of access to government information unless, on balance, it is contrary to the public interest to release the information.
You can access departmental information via the Department of Justice and Attorney-General. If the information you want is held by another Queensland government department you can contact the relevant contact officer of that department. For information about other Queensland government departments refer to the Right to Information and Information Privacy website.
Please note that you can request access directly from QCAT to search, copy or inspect the register of proceedings (list of cases before QCAT) or record for proceedings (QCAT case files).
Our publication scheme describes and categorises information available from QCAT under the RTI Act. It has been developed to give the community greater access to information as part of the response to the review of freedom of information laws.
Information is grouped and accessible through seven classes:
- About us – who we are and what we do
- Our services – services provided by QCAT
- Our finances – our financial information
- Our priorities – priorities and progress
- Our decisions – how we make decisions
- Our policies – our policies and procedures
- Our lists – lists and registers.
You have the right to complain if information identified in our publication scheme is not available.
The disclosure log is a record of documents released to applicants under the Right to Information Act 2009.
Please refer to the Department of Justice and Attorney-General disclosure log for more information.
