Recent reforms to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) have established the Information Publication Scheme (IPS), promoting a pro-disclosure culture across Australian Government agencies.
We recognise that public sector information should be treated as a national resource. In support of this principle, this page assists you to better understand how we make decisions and administer programs.
