Chapter 4—Management and accountability

Freedom of information

Agencies subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) are required to publish information to the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme (IPS). This requirement is in Part II of the FOI Act and has replaced the former requirement to publish a s. 8 statement in an annual report. Each agency must display on its website a plan showing what information it publishes in accordance with the IPS requirements. Information published in accordance with the IPS requirements is accessible from the Old Parliament House website at moadoph.gov.au/about/freedom-of-information/.
