Abstract

Reform of Commonwealth freedom of information legislation has entrenched a pro-disclosure culture. New requirements for proactive publication are enhancing community access to, and engagement with, government information. Robust information management systems are critical if government is to meet its obligations to give access to documents and publish information, while protecting personal privacy.

Keywords: freedom of information, FOI, open government, public sector information, information management, Australia
