Agency File Reporting (Senate Order 12)


Senate order for production of indexed lists of agency files


In 1994, the Australian Senate agreed to a motion by Senator Harradine that each Minister table indexed lists of files created in the central office of each federal government department or agency—Senate Continuing Order No. 5. The lists are tabled twice a year (1 January to 30 June; 1 July to 31 December).

In late 1998, the order was amended on the recommendation of the Finance and Public Administration References Committee, to require Commonwealth agencies to place the file list on their internet website at half-yearly intervals and then table a letter in parliament confirming this. The changed order applies to files created from 1 July 1998.
