The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (Commonwealth) and the Office of the Information Commissioner (Queensland) are independent government agencies responsible for functions relating to access to information, privacy and government information policy. At both the federal and state level, information commissioners review decisions made by other government agencies under access to information and privacy legislation, and also deal with enquiries and complaints. Within the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner, freedom of information, privacy and information policy are integrated in a single office.
