Information Publication Scheme 
 

 Information Publication Scheme 

Efic is subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (“FOI Act”) although it is partially exempt from aspects of the FOI Act. In addition section 87 of the Export Finance and Insurance Corporation Act 1991 ("Efic Act”) requires that members of the Efic Board and employees of Efic keep client information confidential. Subject to these exemptions, Efic is required to comply with the Information Publication Scheme (“IPS”) requirements under the FOI Act.

The information Efic is required to publish under the IPS, other than exempt material, is as follows:

  • IPS Agency Plan: Describes how Efic complies with the IPS requirements of the FOI Act.
  • Who we are: Information about Efic’s role as the Australian Government’s export credit agency, the composition of Efic’s Board (including statutory appointments) and our organisational structure.
  • What we do: Efic’s functions are set out in the Efic Act and our Principal Accountabilities are to the Minister for Trade and Investment and the Australian Parliament. Read about Efic’s governance framework and about the finance solutions and insurance solutions we offer under Parts 4 and 5 of the Efic Act.
  • Our Board: Information about our Board members, the Board charter and the Board audit committee, and about our governance framework.
  • Our responses to Parliament: Efic will publish any information that we routinely provide to Parliament.
  • Our Annual Reports
  • Routinely requested information and disclosure log: Efic does not receive routine requests for information. If Efic receives any routine requests for information we will publish them here. Efic’s disclosure log sets out any information that has been released in response to an FOI access request.
  • Consultation arrangements: If Efic undertakes public consultation on a specific policy proposal, it will make available information about how members of the public can make submissions on the proposal.
  • Our priorities: Are encompassed in our vision, mission and values.
  • Our finances: Efic’s financial statements are published each year in our Annual Report.
