Freedom of Information and the Information Publication Scheme

 Information Publishing Scheme

Part II of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) establishes an Information Publication Scheme (IPS) for Australian Government agencies subject to the FOI Act.  The IPS commences on 1 May 2011 and requires agencies to publish a broad range of information on their websites.

The Commission's Information Publication Scheme Plan describes how it intends to comply with the IPS.
