Reports to COAG

From 2008 to 2014 Infrastructure Australia reported regularly to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) through the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport. Copies of these reports are available in Publications.

Freedom of Information

A new information publication plan for Australian Government agencies was introduced in 2011 to foster greater openness and transparency, and encourage a more proactive approach to publishing information. More information is available at Freedom of Information.

Indexed List of Files

Every six months, we are required to prepare a response to the Senate Continuing Order for Indexed List of Departmental or Agency Files (known more often as “the Harradine Report”, as the order was instigated by then Senator Harradine in 1996).
This order requires that an indexed list of all files, created in the central offices of all Federal Government agencies, be published to the internet so it is accessible to the public and can assist with Freedom of Information requests.
The Continuing Order requires that only relevant file titles be published on our website and allows for the following exclusions to be made from the list:

  • Case related files (eg personal representations or dealings with the personal affairs of policy departments or tax payers);
  • Files related to the internal administration of the Department or Agency;
  • Containing commercially confidential or identifiably personal information;
  • Files that on face value, disclose that a particular matter had been put out, or was to be put to the Cabinet.
