About the scheme
The IPS commenced on 1 May 2011 and requires all government agencies to publish a broad range of information and make it available for downloading where possible.
We are required to comply with the Information Publication Scheme (IPS) requirements provided under Part II of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).
DSS' IPS Plan
The DSS’ IPS Plan describes how we proposes to comply with the IPS requirements, as prescribed by paragraph 8(1) of the FOI Act.
