Right to Information
Right to Information
The Queensland Government is making it easier for you to access information about Queensland Theatre Company, one of its statutory bodies. This includes information about our policies, codes of conduct, financial records, correspondence, registers, and documents relating to some government decisions.
What is the Right to Information?
The Right to Information 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.
New legislation replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992 came into effect on 1 July 2009, namely:
The Right to Information reforms aim to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals’ privacy.
For more in depth information please visit the Queensland Government’s Right to Information.
How do I access information?
We’re making it easier to access information about Queensland Theatre Company, our services, finances, policies, registers and lists, as well as information released through Right to Information (RTI) requests.
There are several options available to access this information, you can:
- Check to see if the information you’re looking for is already available from:
- our publication scheme – information about Queensland Theatre Company, our services, finances, priorities, decisions, policies, lists and registers
- our disclosure log non-personal information released through the RTI legal process
- our website
- areas of Queensland Theatre Company that might have what you are looking for.
- Contact us on (07) 3010 7600 or email email@example.com if the information is not already available. We’ll help determine if the information is accessible through an administrative release process, or we’ll advise if you need to make an RTI request to access it.
Information requested and released through the Right to Information (RTI) process is made available to the public through a disclosure log.
The Right to Information Act 2009 came into effect from 1 July 2009 and at this time our disclosure log does not contain any requested information.
Information released in response to non-personal Right to Information requests will be progressively published in a disclosure log including a description of information released and, where possible, a link to the relevant documents.
Should you have any questions please contact Queensland Theatre Company.
Queensland Theatre Company’s publication scheme details information we routinely make available to the public.
Our publication scheme describes and categorises the information routinely available from Queensland Theatre Company. It has been developed to give the community greater access to information.
