In 1994, the Senate agreed to a motion that all Australian Government departments and agencies table lists of relevant files every 6 months. We publish files relating to policy advising functions, including any legislation development or other matters of public administration.

Find out how to request access to these records under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 1982.

The department's indexed list of files

This list does not include:

  • files transferred to the National Archives of Australia 
  • files essentially related the internal administration of the department (staff or personnel, accounts, training, or general  administrative matters) 
  • case related files (for example personal representation or dealing with the personal affairs of departmental or agency client)
  • file titles whose national security classification is Secret or Top Secret or their equivalent.

Some information in file titles has been deleted, such as:

  • commercially confidential information
  • identifiably personal information
  • any security classified information which is disclosed in or which could reasonably be established from a file title.
