What is right to information?
The Right to Information Act 2009 (RTI Act), is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information. The Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the Government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.
Further information about Whole of Government policy and the relevant legislation is available from www.rti.qld.gov.au.
How do I access information
The Public Safety Business Agency processes right to information requests for the Office of the Inspector_General Emergency Management (IGEM).
Should you wish to make a right to information application, please go to apply for information.
Our publication scheme describes and categorises information that is routinely available from the OFfice of the IGEM.
All information and documents accessible via the publication scheme are provided free of charge except where otherwise stipulated.
A disclosure log provides details of access applications made to an agency under the Right to Information Act 2009 including a summary of documents that are available and considered to be of interest to the wider public. Under the Act, information of a sensitive nature such as personal details, are removed from the documents prior to their release.
No applications have been received by the Office of the Inspector-General Emergency Management to date. Once an application is received, details will be made available on the Disclosure Log webpage.
|Apply for Information
The Office of the IGEM holds a wide range of information that relates to our review, audit, assurance and administrative responsibilities and our relationships with other government agencies and professional organisations.
The Office of the IGEM maintains a database of selected agencies and persons with whom communication and engagement activities are undertaken. This database is held securely by the IGEM.
If you are seeking access to non-personal information not available in our Publication Scheme or Disclosure Log, you should apply under the RTI Act.
Under the RTI and IP Acts, you can only apply to access or amend documents. These processes cannot be used to ask for general information or for answers to your questions.
If any member of the community wishes to make an application for access to documents held by the IGEM or the Office of the IGEM under the RTI Act or Information Privacy Act 2009 (IP Act) they may do so by completing the approved application form which can be found at www.rti.qld.gov.au.
