If you have been unable to obtain the information you are after, you can make an application for assessed disclosure of that information.
This means that we will locate the information (if we have it) and assess it to determine if it can be disclosed to you or not.
An application for assessed disclosure must be in writing.
A form to assist in making an application is available here.(Word) (PDF). If you are not using the form, please note that your application must still be in writing and must include the information that is requested on the form. This is a requirement of Regulation 4 of the Right to Information Regulations 2010.
Applications must be accompanied by the application fee which is currently $41.25 for 2021-22.
You may apply to have the fee waived if one of the following applies:
- you are in financial hardship - we will need evidence such as a Centrelink Health Care Card
- you are a member of parliament and the application is in connection with your official duty
- you are able to show that the information sought is intended to be used for a purpose that is of general public interest or benefit.
Send your application to:
Right to Information Officer
Department of State Growth
GPO Box 536
Hobart TAS 7001
or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure you have looked for the information before you make a formal application, because if the information is otherwise available your application may be refused without the return of your application fee.
