The broad objective of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act)  is to give the Australian community access to information held by the Government of the Commonwealth. In order to do this, agencies are required to publish the information and members of the public are provided with a general right of access to documents.
Requests made under the FOI Act must:
- be in writing;
- state that the request is an application for the purposes of the FOI Act;
- provide such information concerning the document that will allow the Department to identify it; and
- provide detail of how notices provided by the Department in relation to the FOI request can be sent to the applicant.
FOI requests made to the Department on or after 1 November 2010 no longer require an application fee.
The FOI Act provides that charges may be imposed for processing requests.
FOI requests should be sent to:
The FOI Coordinator
Legal Services Branch
Department of Finance
John Gorton Building
King Edward Terrace
PARKES ACT 2600
FOI requests may also be lodged by email to email@example.com.
The FOI Coordinator can be contacted on 02) 6215 1783 to discuss any prospective request to the Department.
The Secretary for Finance has established Procedures for dealing with Public Interest Disclosures. Disclosures can be directed to an Authorised Officer, appointed under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act), via email to PID@Finance.gov.au.
The PID Act prescribes a framework for the disclosure and investigation of wrongdoing and maladministration in the Australian public sector (APS). Finance encourages and supports the reporting of wrongdoings in the APS so that they can be investigated and addressed.
