Disability reporting mechanism

The National Disability Strategy is Australia’s overarching framework for disability reform. It acts to ensure the principles underpinning the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities are incorporated into Australia’s policies and programs that affect people with disability, their families and carers.

All levels of government will continue to be held accountable for the implementation of the strategy through progress reporting to the Australian, state, territory and local governments. Progress reports can be found at dss.gov.au. Disability reporting is included in the Australian Public Service Commissioner’s State of the Service reports and the APS Statistical Bulletin. These reports are available at www.apsc.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.
