Disclosure log – right to information requests

TIQ’s Disclosure log provides details of non-personal information released under the Right to Information Act 2009 that is considered to be of significant interest to the wider public. The Disclosure log provides links to documents released by TIQ under the Right to information 2009 Act and that are available to the public.

Information not included on the disclosure log

Documents containing an applicant’s personal information will not be published on the Disclosure log. TIQ will also remove any information (including individual’s names) from any document on the Disclosure log that is required under section78B of the RTI Act, including when:

  • the publication of the information is prevented by law; or
  • the information may be defamatory; or
  • publishing the information would unreasonably invade an individual’s privacy or cause substantial harm to an entity; or
  • the information is of a confidential nature communicated in confidence; or
  • the information is protected from disclosure under a contract

In some cases, there may be blank pages in a document due to either removal of information under section78B, or by redaction through the decision-making process for the original RTI application. Blank pages will not be included in the Disclosure log.

2014 Disclosure log

TIQ transitioned to become a statutory body on 1 February 2014. Prior to that date, TIQ RTI applications were managed by a host department. Queensland Treasury managed RTI applications immediately prior to the transition date. The TIQ Disclosure log therefore contains RTI applications dated after 1 February 2014. Some documents may only be available in PDF form. If you are unable to access this format, please email rti@tiq.qld.gov.au or telephone 07-3514 3074. TIQ will attempt to meet all reasonable requests.
