Appendix B - Freedom of information

Freedom of information

Entities subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 are required to publish information to the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme. This requirement is in Part II of the Act and has replaced the former requirement to publish a section 8 statement in an annual report. Each agency must display on its website a plan showing what information it publishes in accordance with the Scheme’s requirements. The Department’s plan is available on the Finance website at finance.gov.au/foi/information_publication_scheme.html.

Members of the public can provide comments on the Department’s information publication plan to the Freedom of Information Team.
