The Information Publication Scheme (IPS) aims to transform the freedom of information framework from one that responds to individual requests for access to documents, to one that requires Australian Government agencies to take a proactive approach to publishing information.
In accordance with the scheme, the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education Agency Plan provides guidance on how Commercialisation Australia will publish information. Information on the Department’s Information Publication Scheme can be found at the Innovation website.
