Information Publication Scheme
Australian Government agencies subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) are required to publish a range of information on their websites as part of an Information Publication Scheme (IPS). This includes the agency's structure, functions, appointments, annual reports, consultation arrangements, and details of the agency's freedom of information (FOI) officer. Information routinely released through FOI requests must also be published online.
The IPS is intended to form the basis for a more open and transparent culture across government, with agencies encouraged to take a proactive approach to publishing the information they hold, and to consider publishing information over and above what they are obliged to publish.
Who regulates the IPS?
The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) is the agency with oversight responsibility for the IPS for all Australian Government agencies subject to the FOI Act. To find out more about the IPS see the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) website.
The NTC is committed to taking a proactive approach to publishing information. Our Information Publication Scheme Plan outlines our approach to the scheme. Below are headings for each of the categories of information we are publishing in our IPS entry. Under each heading are links to the information or documents. If you have any difficulty accessing any information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information that we have released under FOI requests is available on our FOI disclosure log.
Information about the organisation and structure of the NTC, the location of offices, governance arrangements, senior management team and statutory appointments, description of the functions and powers of the NTC, its rules, guidelines, practices and precedents relating to those functions and powers (that is, operational information).
