FREEDOM OF INFORMATION:
information publication scheme
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 FOI 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.
The Scheme is intended to form the basis for a more open and transparent culture across government with agencies encouraged to take a proactive approach to publishing the information they hold, and to consider what they should be publishing over and above what they are obliged to publish.
What is Screen Australia doing about it?
Screen Australia is committed to taking a proactive approach to publishing information. Our Agency IPS plan outlines our approach to the scheme and what we will include in our IPS entry. Below are headings for each of the categories of information we are publishing in our IPS entry. Under each heading are links to the information or documents. If you have any difficulty accessing any information please contact us.
Information on requesting access to other information Screen Australia holds, not published through the IPS or elsewhere on our website, can be found on the Freedom of Information page.
Information we have released under freedom of information requests is available on our Disclosure log page.
