In accordance with Section 27 of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, Council is required to maintain a register that records information about each contract with a private company which has (or is likely to have) a value of $150,000 (incl. GST) or more.

This information must be available within 45 days of the contract becoming effective and continue to be available for either 20 working days or until the obligations under the contract have been satisfied, whichever is the longer period.

Council is not required to publish certain confidential information, including:

  • Commercial in-confidence provisions of a contract;
  • Details of any unsuccessful tender;
  • Any matter that could be reasonably expected to affect public safety or security; or
  • Information where there is an overriding public interest against disclosure of the record.

Further details are available on the NSW Information and Privacy Commission website.
