Information Publication Scheme plan

TEQSA is subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) and must comply with the Information Publication Scheme (IPS) requirements within that Act. These requirements impose an obligation on TEQSA to publish a range of information including information about what we do and how we do it.

We publish this information on our website and ensure that we fulfil the requirements of the IPS by allowing you to search and access the information we are required to publish.

Senate Continuing Order 12 requires the production of files relating to policy advising functions, the development of legislation and matters of public administration, not later than the tenth day of the spring and autumn sittings. Case related files, those related to internal administration of a department or agency, and those files transferred to the National Archives, are specifically excluded.
