The Information Publication Scheme (IPS) has been established under Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). The FOI Act requires agencies from 1 May 2011 to publish:
- specified information on agency operations under the IPS, and
- information accessed in response to FOI applications in a disclosure log.
The FOI Act also encourages proactive publication of information held by an agency. ARPC provides the following information in accordance with the IPS and will continue to identify and publish information accessible through this website.
ARPC Agency Plan
The agency plan describes how ARPC proposes to do this, as required by s 8(1) of the FOI Act.

Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) came into effect on 15 January 2014. The PID Act promotes integrity and accountability in the Australian public sector by encouraging the disclosure of information about suspected wrongdoing. It also protects people who make disclosures and requires that agencies take action. The emphasis of the scheme is on disclosures being made and investigated within government. The PID Act is not intended to replace existing processes for dealing with workplace grievances and misconduct, such as bullying and harassment, but rather to supplement them. For further information on ARPC’s PID Policy, including details on who can make a disclosure, what can be reported and how to do so, please read the ARPC Public Information Disclosure Policy. For further information about the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013, see www.ombudsman.gov.au.
