Information Publication Scheme
As a result of major changes to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act), Australian Government agencies which are subject to the FOI Act, are required to publish a range of information on their websites as part of an Information Publication Scheme (IPS). The Scheme 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 what they should be publishing over and above what they are obliged to publish.
In this case the Office of the Aged Care Commissioner (the OACC) will list the links to the its structure, functions, appointments, annual reports, consultation arrangements, and details of the agency's FOI officer below. Information routinely released from FOI requests and routinely provided to parliament will also be published online.
The OACC is committed to taking a proactive approach to publishing information. Our Publication Plan outlines our approach to the scheme and what we will include in our Publications Plan.
Below are links to information published under the IPS. If you have any difficulty accessing any information please contact us.
Information that we have released under freedom of information requests is available on our ‘FOI Disclosure log’

- Structure (Organisation Chart)
The OACC's 'Complaints Management Guidelines' are currently being revised in light of recent legislative changes. When these guidelines have been updated, they will be published on the OACC website and contain further operational information.
Section 8(2)(f) of the FOI Act requires publication of details of arrangements for members of the public to comment on specific policy proposals for which the OACC is responsible The OACC is not presently responsible for any specific policy proposals within the scope of s8(2)(f). Should the OACC become responsible for any specific policy proposals in the future, details of arrangements for members of the public to comment on will be published at that time.
