Appendix D: Information Publication Scheme Statement

Agencies subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) are required to publish information for the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme (IPS). This requirement is in Part II of the FOI Act and has replaced the former requirement to publish a section 8 statement in an annual report. Each agency must display on its website a plan showing what information it publishes in accordance with the IPs requirements.

An agency plan showing what information is published in accordance with IPS requirements is accessible from publications-scheme.
