Right to Information

Right to Information

The Right to Information is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information.

Effective 1 July 2009 the Queensland government introduced the Right to Information Act (2009) and Information Privacy Act (2009) which replaces the Freedom of Information Act 1992. Through this legislation, the Government is committed to providing access to information held by the Government and by public authorities and agencies, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

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. Further information about Right to Information (and Information Privacy) can be viewed from the Queensland Government's Office of the Information Commissioner website.

CQUniversity is a public authority under the Right to Information Act and is required to publish a web-based Publication Scheme which sets out the University's key information holdings which are significant, appropriate and accurate.

CQUniversity is committed to making its relevant information routinely available to the public.  If you have any queries or complaints regarding the information available on CQUniversity's Publication Scheme, please address them in writing or via e-mail to:
