Compliance Review – Queensland Universities
Griffith University; Queensland University of Technology; University of Queensland and University of Southern Queensland.
Review of universities’ compliance with the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) and the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld).
This report details the findings of reviews of Griffith University, the Queensland University of Technology, the University of Queensland and the University of Southern Queensland and their progress in implementing right to information (RTI) and information privacy (IP). Overall, the four universities’ performance was strong and the review found they were progressing well in meeting their legislative obligations.
Consistent with the push model, the universities proactively publish a wealth of significant information, including research, as a matter of course and each has in place strategies for the proactive release of information, including for example, Open Access repositories for research publications, publication schemes and disclosure logs. Where applications for information were made under the RTI and IP Acts, the handling of those applications was of a good overall standard across all four universities.
