The Office of the Information Commissioner Northern Territory

The Information Commissioner promotes understanding and awareness of FOI and Privacy in the community and the public sector, and deals with complaints about breaches of privacy and about FOI decisions made by public sector organisations.

Freedom of information (FOI) gives you the right to apply for access to NT government information. It is about enhancing government accountability and participation in our democratic system of government.

The Privacy scheme in the Information Act is about making sure that NT public sector organisations respect your privacy when they collect or handle personal information about you.
