NSW Information Commissioner hits the web

Judge Ken Taylor AM RFD Acting NSW Information Commissioner

Among the materials posted is this plain-English guide to the new act Right to information in NSW which provides an overview including the many significant changes from FOI "pull" to the GIPA Act "push" model with its emphasis on proactive disclosure.

For the record I was engaged by the Office to research and prepare a draft of the Guide
