Information Publication Scheme (IPS)


Information publication scheme

Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth)

The Information Publication Scheme (IPS) aims to transform the freedom of information framework from one that responds to individual requests for access to documents to one that requires Australian Government agencies to take a proactive approach to publishing information. The scheme commenced on 1 May 2011.​

The IPS:

  • requires Australian Government agencies to publish information publication plans;
  • specifies categories of information that must be published; and
  • provides a means for agencies to proactively publish other government information.

Further information on the IPS is available from the office of the Australian Commissioner (OAIC) website.
