On 14 November 1994, the Senate agreed to a motion by Senator Harradine requiring all Australian Government departments and agencies to produce an indexed list of files every six months for tabling before parliament. The Order was amended in 1998 to require departments to also list these files online.

The production of the list is intended to make the operations of government more transparent to the Australian public. To find out how to request access to documents, visit our Freedom of Information page
