The Information Publication Scheme (IPS) is established by Part II of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FoI Act) with effect from May 1 2011. The IPS aims to transform the freedom of information framework from one that responds to individual requests for access to documents to one that requires agencies to take a proactive approach to publishing information. You can find out more about the IPS on the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner website.
Under the Information Publication Scheme:
- Australian Government agencies are required to publish agency plans
- specific categories of information must be published
- agencies may proactively publish other government information.
