Welcome to the first edition of Clayton Utz Information Insights, in which we'll look at the unique issues affecting information-handling in the public sector. We hope you find this a useful guide to this increasingly complex area of administration and decision-making.
The public sector is generally aware of the privacy legislation, but are there other sources of law affecting how you handle information? In this edition we examine a recent court decision which adds another piece to the puzzle.
We’ll also consider contractor confidentiality in procurement, and some FOI issues, including how to handle a serial applicant and when to waive FOI fees.
