Official Information Act responses (OIAs)

The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) publishes responses to Official Information Act (OIA) requests, as appropriate, soon after DPMC has sent the response to the requestor.

The reply letter from DPMC details the information being released and explains what information, if any, has been withheld and under which grounds of the OIA. The requestor's name and address have been removed.

Please contact DPMC directly for accessible versions of the responses if required.

OIA response publication schedule

Batches of responses will typically be released here once a month. There will be no notification on this page if there are no responses to be published on a particular day, nor will we signal in advance which responses will be published.

Please note DPMC will not be publishing OIA responses during the summer holiday period.  Publication will recommence in February
