Disability reporting mechanism

Since 1994, non‑corporate Commonwealth entities have reported on their performance as policy adviser, purchaser, employer, regulator and provider under the Commonwealth Disability Strategy. In 2007–08, reporting on the employer role was transferred to the Australian Public Service Commission’s State of the Service reports and the APS statistical bulletin. These reports are available at apsc.gov.au. From 2010–11, entities have no longer been required to report on these functions.

The Commonwealth Disability Strategy has been overtaken by the National Disability Strategy 2010–2020, which sets out a 10‑year national policy framework to improve the lives of people with disability, promote participation and create a more inclusive society. A high‑level, two‑yearly report will track progress against each of the six outcome areas of the strategy and present a picture of how people with disability are faring. The first of these progress reports was published in 2014 and can be found at dss.gov.au.

Information Publication Scheme

The Commission is subject to the FOI Act and is required to publish information to the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme (IPS). Under Part II of the FOI Act, the Commission must display on its website a plan showing what information it publishes in accordance with the IPS requirements. The Commission’s information publication plan is available at fwc.gov.au.
