Agency Plan April 2011

CSIRO is bound by the Freedom of Information Act 1982 Cth (the 'FOI Act') and is required to comply with the provisions of the FOI Act relating to the Information Publication Scheme (IPS).

The IPS is in keeping with the recent reforms to the FOI Act to promote open and transparent communication of government information.

The IPS commences on 1 May 2011 and requires agencies to publish a broad range of information online.

For more details on the IPS see the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner [external link].

CSIRO has prepared this Agency Plan in accordance with section 8(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 Cth (the 'FOI Act') to describe how CSIRO proposes to implement and administer the IPS in respect of information held by CSIRO.
