The NSW Police Force is seeking an improved Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA) Application Management System. GIPA replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 and gives the public an enforceable right to access Government information. The GIPA system facilitates the application process, however, tender documents state the current system “is cumbersome and time-consuming for the applicant”. The current system was created as a “Band-Aid” interim solution when the new legislation was passed in 2009. According to the RFT, “It lacks adequate data backup and recovery procedures, has concurrency problems, lacks sufficient security controls and is unreliable”. Tender submissions close on 7 April 2014.
