What is the Information Publication Scheme?
As a result of major changes to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act), Australian government agencies which are subject to the Act, are required to publish a range of information on their websites as part of an Information Publication Scheme (IPS). This includes the agencies structure, functions, appointments, annual reports,consultation arrangements, and details of the agency’s FOI officer. Information routinely released from FOI requests and routinely provided to parliament must also be published online.
As a part of the Department of Defence, within VCDF Group, ACMC’s responsibilities under the FoI Act fall under those of the Department of Defence. The Department’s Freedom of Information material is available on the Department’s site.
