Information Publication Scheme (IPS)

Australian Government agencies that are subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI), are required to publish a range of information on their websites as part of the IPS. The IPS is intended to form the basis for a more open and transparent culture across government with agencies encouraged to take a proactive approach to publishing the information they hold, and to consider what they can publish over and above the information they are obliged to publish.
