Information Publication Scheme

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.
