Information Publication Scheme
An Information Publication Scheme (IPS) has been established under the 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
- information accessed in response to FOI applications in a disclosure log.
The FOI Act also encourages proactive publication of information held by an agency.
The Inspector-General of Taxation (IGT) provides the following information in accordance with the IPS and will continue to identify and publish information accessible through this website. See the IGT’s agency plan to implement the IPS for further information.
