Official Information Act
Boards are subject to the Official Information Act 1982 and Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.
The Ombudsman provides a useful set of guidelines to:
- assist holders of official information to interpret the Official Information Act and Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act and to respond to official information requests
- assist requesters to make official information requests
- provide insight into the administration of the Official Information Act and Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act, and
- provide advice on the approach of the Ombudsman to various parts of this legislation.
If you have any questions about any Official Information Act request that has been made of your board then please contact your Advisory and Support Centre or alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org.
