The Information Publication Scheme (IPS) aims to transform the freedom of information framework from one that responds to individual requests for access to documents, to one that requires Australian Government agencies to take a proactive approach to publishing information.
Information Publication Scheme Plan for IBA
Part II of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) establishes an Information Publication Scheme (IPS) for agencies, reflecting increased recognition that public sector information should be managed for public purposes, as a national resource. Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) intends to foster a culture of continuous and proactive disclosure.

Routinely requested information and disclosure log
IBA will continue to monitor information which is routinely requested during the period prior to the next review and will publish those documents on this website. IBA will identify these documents in its Freedom of Information Disclosure Log.
As a Commonwealth Corporate Entity, IBA is required to report annually on directors/senior executive/senior management remuneration and we meet this obligation through our annual report. In addition, we have been requested to publish relevant information relating to executive remuneration on our website. This information for financial year 2017-18 is outlined in the table below.

The position of Chief Executive Officer is classified as a Principal Executive Officer and is remunerated consistent with determinations as and when made by the Remuneration Tribunal (an independent statutory body that determines the remuneration of key commonwealth offices). IBA Directors are considered part time public office holders and are remunerated in accordance with determinations as and when made by the Remuneration Tribunal for part time public office holders.
IBA’s Senior Executives are generally engaged on term based employment contracts which detail the terms and conditions of employment including remuneration. Terms and conditions for all other staff (including senior managers) are contained in IBA’s Enterprise Agreement 2016–19.
There are currently no proposals whereby IBA is seeking public consultation. Should IBA undertake any work that utilises public consultation, the relevant details will be published here.
