The Information Publication Scheme (IPS) has been established under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). The IPS requires Australian Government agencies to publish a broad range of information on their websites and to publish an Agency Plan to explain how the IPS is administered.
The Agency Plan describes what information ARPC will publish; how it will publish this information; and how it will comply with the requirements of the IPS, as required by s 8(1) of the FOI Act.

Our Reports and Responses to Parliament:
Routinely Requested Information and Disclosure Log:
- ARPC is required by section 11C of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 to publish a disclosure log on its website. The disclosure log lists information which has been released in response to an FOI access request.
- ARPC invites public comment on ARPC’s reviews, consultations, and discussion papers. There are currently no consultations taking place.
Other Information Published under the IPS:
- The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) promotes integrity and accountability in the Australian public sector by encouraging the disclosure of information about suspected wrongdoing. It protects public officials who make disclosures and requires that agencies take action. The emphasis of the scheme is on disclosures being made and investigated within the 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 Public Interest Disclosure Procedure, including details on who can make a disclosure, what can be reported and how to do so, please read ARPC’s PID Procedure. For further information about the PID Act, see www.ombudsman.gov.au.
Our Workplace Policies and Plans:
- ARPC has to this date, not made submissions to Parliamentary committees and other agencies.
Accessibility under the IPS:
- Comments on ARPC’s IPS information holdings and whether they are easily discoverable, understandable, and machine-readable can be provided to ARPC. ARPC will arrange to make documents available in alternative forms upon request where possible.
