Accessing information

We publish a range of information about our department under the Information Publication Scheme (IPS).

The IPS promotes proactive disclosure of public sector information. It requires Australian Government agencies to publish information under Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

We publish information on this page to comply with our IPS obligations.

This aligns with our IPS agency plan.
