Disclosing government information requested under FOI

The SA Government makes information that is regularly requested under freedom of information (FOI) available to the community.

The government acknowledges the information it holds is a valuable public resource and is committed to being open and accountable while engaging with the community. The government values public participation in the making of decisions, policies, and laws.

Since September 2013 DECD has been publicly publishing regularly requested information as part of the Government’s commitment to transparency and accountability. The process is governed by Premier and Cabinet Circular 35 (PC035). This policy was updated in March 2016 to include an expanded range of information.

The information made available under PC035 includes expenditure on mobile phones, credit cards, overseas and domestic travel, ancillary office expenditure, capital works, procurement practices, consultants and  gifts.

If members of the public are unable to view or download the data online, please contact the decd.foi [at] sa.gov.au (Freedom of Information unit) or write to GPO Box 1152, ADELAIDE SA 5000 to request the information in either hardcopy or email form.
