Information Publication Scheme (IPS)

The Australian Public Service Commission (APSC) is an agency subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) and is required to comply with the Information Publication Scheme (IPS) requirements.

The information on this page shows how the APSC proposes to do this, as required by s 8(1) of the FOI Act.

The APSC is currently undertaking a review of its website and links on this page will change as a result. As part of its commitment to the IPS the APSC will ensure that all links are current.
