The Government has committed to the establishment of disclosure logs for all state government agencies to provide central access to non-personal information that has been released under the FOI Act.
Disclosure logs for Non-personal information (PC045) released through FOI is available on the Department of the Premier and Cabinet website.
The Department for Energy and Mining’s (DEM) disclosure log is published on its website and lists information that has been released by DEM in response to a request for access to information under the FOI Act.
DEM is required to make available on our website information and documents that have already been disclosed to an FOI applicant that:
- are not related to the personal affairs of an individual; and
- could not be claimed as exempt documents/material pursuant to Schedule 1 of the FOI Act, when being publicly released; and
- could not be considered defamatory or a breach of confidentiality or reasonably be anticipated to cause harm to a person.
In some cases, some documents may be deemed as too large and therefore unreasonable to upload online. In these cases a copy of the determination may be available by contacting the FOI Officer directly.
In some circumstances, a charge may be imposed to reimburse DEM for the cost incurred in copying or reproducing the information and sending it to you. You will be notified if any charge is payable and if a charge is payable, you will be required to pay the charge before the information is provided.
The Department for Energy and Mining came into effect on 1 July 2018. Disclosure logs for FOI completed for the department and the previous Minister for Energy and Mining, prior to the March 2022 election, are available via the following links:
- Disclosure logs for FOI completed for the department
- Disclosure logs for FOI completed for the Minister
The FOI disclosure log for the current Minister for Energy and Mining, the Hon Tom Koutsantonis MP, is available from the Department for Infrastructure and Transport website.
