Our priorities

The Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) supports the Queensland Government’s aim to be open and transparent.

Our Strategic Plan (PDF, 647.19 KB) outlines how the office will meet its statutory responsibilities set out in the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) (RTI Act) and the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld) (IP Act). The plan identifies our core service performance indicators and performance measures.

Our Operational Plan   (PDF, 528.68 KB)identifies the key activities that will contribute to achieving the goals and objectives outlined in our strategic plan.

The performance dashboard tracks OIC’s performance against our five key service objectives and service standards.

Our Open Data Strategy sets out a four-year plan of how OIC will support the Queensland Governments Open Data initiative by publishing datasets we hold.

The Annual Report is an account of our work and financial position for the 12 months ending 30 June. It reflects our performance against our strategic plan. Visit information and resources for historic performance indicators.

In addition to the annual report, under the RTI Act the Information Commissioner reports annually to the parliamentary Legal Affairs  and Community Safety Committee (LACSC), on the performance of OIC’s functions.

The Information Commissioner may also choose to compile a report on an external review that OIC has conducted on a Queensland Government agency’s compliance with the RTI Act and IP Act. After finishing a review, the Information Commissioner must, as soon as possible, give a report of the outcome of the review to the LACSC.

Under the RTI Act, a strategic review of OIC must be conducted every five years. The first review, under sections 187 and 188 must be conducted within four years of the commencement of the Act. This strategic review will include a review of the Information Commissioner’s functions, and a review of the Information Commissioner’s performance of the functions, in order to assess whether or not they are being performed economically, efficiently and effectively.
