Freedom of information

Agencies subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) are required to publish information to the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme (IPS). This requirement is in Part II of the FOI Act and has replaced the former requirement to publish a section 8 statement in an annual report.

Comcare's IPS has been developed to give the community greater access to information held by Comcare. To ensure that the IPS entry and individual IPS documents are easily discoverable Comcare has published an IPS icon on the homepage of its website. This icon links to the IPS section of the website. The publication scheme describes and categorises information routinely available from the agency.
