Access to information
To promote open, accountable, fair and effective government in NSW, members of the public have a right to access government information.
The Department publishes a large volume of material on its websites. We try to release as much government information as possible, either through our websites or in another appropriate way, and free of charge or at the lowest reasonable cost.
NSW Trade & Investment is a newly formed department looking to drive sustainable economic growth in NSW. To achieve this we need a diverse workforce that is able to meet the changing needs of industry, investors, consumers and the wider population of New South Wales.
Tenders (current and issued) are now centralised on the NSW Government's eTendering website.
Invoices issued by NSW Trade & Investment can be paid online using your Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Diners Club card, or by Direct Debit.
New service delivery standards have been established for the processing of applications under the Mining Act 1992.
