Information Publication Scheme

​​​​​​​​Government agencies are expected to take an active approach to sharing information with the public.​

The Information Publication Scheme details the types of information government must actively share. This is a part of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).​

As an Australian Government agency, the Regional Investment Corporation must meet these requirements.

Our approach

We intend to foster a culture of appropriate information sharing.

We are committed to:

  • publishing information about our agency, including anything required under s 8(2) of the FOI Act
  • maintaining this website to keep information current and accessible to the public

Explore the links available on this page for more detail.

Who we are

As a new agency, we are finalising our structure. When it is ready, we will publish it on this website.

What we do
