Information Publication Scheme

Information Publication Scheme

The Information Publication Scheme (IPS) is established by Part II of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FoI Act) with effect from 1 May 2011. The IPS aims to transform the freedom of information framework from one that responds to individual requests for access to documents to one that requires agencies to take a proactive approach to publishing information. You can find out more about the  IPS on the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner website.

Under the Information Publication Scheme:

  • Australian Government agencies are required to publish agency plans
  • specific categories of information must be published
  • agencies may proactively publish other government information.

Agency Plan

The TSRA may be contacted about its information and IPS entry on the following details:

The Chief Executive Officer
Torres Strait Regional Authority
PO Box 216
Thursday Island QLD 4865


In accordance with the Initial Agency Plan, the TSRA will publish the following information holdings:

  • Routinely requested information and disclosure log: This will include information, if any, routinely made accessible in response to FOI requests. We also publish a disclosure log which will identify documents to which TSRA has given access under the FOI Act.
  • Consultation arrangements: Where TSRA undertakes or is required to undertake public consultation on a policy, it will make available information on the procedure for public submissions.
