Information Publication Scheme Logo


The Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI) is an independent statutory agency established by the Law Enforcement Integrity Commissioner Act 2006, led by the Integrity Commissioner.

ACLEI is an agency subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) and must comply with the Information Publication Scheme (IPS) requirements under that Act. You can find out more about the IPS at the website of the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

This webpage documents ACLEI’s information publication plan (the plan) and describes how ACLEI complies with the IPS in respect of its information holdings.


This plan describes how ACLEI will comply with the IPS established under the FOI Act, including:

  • what information ACLEI proposes to publish (our IPS information)
  • how, and to whom, ACLEI will publish IPS information
  • other steps ACLEI will take to comply with the requirements of the IPS – for example, how we will ensure that information that is published is accessible, current, accurate and complete.


ACLEI’s objectives in relation to the plan are to:

  • increase ACLEI’s transparency and accountability through a culture of openness, taking into account our operational duties and functions.
  • ensure we effectively manage our IPS information, including by regularly reviewing and updating it
  • support ACLEI to proactively identify and publish all required IPS information as well as any optional information as appropriate
  • ensure that our IPS information is easy to discover, understand and read, re-use and transform, as well as being machine-readable
  • ensure satisfactory conformance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (Version 2) (WCAG 2.0) in accordance with the timeframes set out by the National Transition Strategy.

Establishing and administering the agency’s IPS entry

The Executive Director Corporate Services and Governance is responsible for implementing this plan and ensuring ACLEI’s compliance with our IPS obligations.

The Governance and Engagement team support the Executive Director Corporate Services and Governance by coordinating the identification of material to be published under the IPS and overseeing compliance with the IPS. The ACLEI Legal team also assist with this work as required.

In addition to evaluating whether information will be published at the time of its creation, our IPS information will be reviewed twice a year to:

  • ensure that our IPS information is accurate, up to date and complete
  • ensure that we publish all required IPS information, and
  • identify any additional information we may choose to publish.

ACLEI is undertaking a range of work to improve our information asset management. An important aspect of this is ensuring that we are open and accountable, where it is appropriate given the nature of our operational work. This includes actively considering what information can be published, consistent with the requirements of the IPS.

An internal IPS Information Register assists ACLEI to efficiently identify information for publication, record decisions made in relation to publication and systematically review IPS information for accuracy, currency and completeness.

IPS information architecture

ACLEI publishes required IPS information on this website. The required IPS information can be easily accessed from the table below. The IPS icon at the bottom of each page of the ACLEI website links directly back to this page.

ACLEI has developed templates and documents in compliance with WCAG 2.0 principles and will ensure, wherever possible, that optional IPS information published on its website conforms to WCAG 2.0 principles. However, priority will be given to publishing the information in a timely manner, even if it is not initially fully WCAG 2.0 compliant.

Members of the public can contact ACLEI in relation to the IPS scheme or to provide any feedback by email or mail.

Other information to be published (s8 (4))

Under s 8 (4) of the FOI Act, ACLEI will also publish other information where appropriate and where it does not prejudice the performance of its functions. Given ACLEI’s functions and powers, some operational information is not suitable for publication as it may harm current and future corruption investigations.

IPS compliance review (s 8F)

ACLEI will review its IPS plan and IPS information twice a year at the beginning and middle of each financial year. At the same time, ACLEI will review its compliance with the IPS in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Information Commissioner, including the self-assessment checklists.

ACLEI will also conduct ad hoc reviews as needed when there are significant changes to its policies, processes or operational environment change.
