Information Publication Scheme

Information Publication Scheme

Agencies subject to the FOI Act are required to publish information to the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme. This requirement is in Part II of the Act and has replaced the former requirement to publish a section 8 statement in an annual report. Each agency must display on its website a plan showing what information it publishes in accordance with the scheme's requirements. Information about the Merit Protection Commissioner is included in the Commission's plan, which is available at www.apsc.gov.au/freedom-of-information/ips.
