Senate Order 12 for Indexed Lists of Departmental or Agency Files
Every six months, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is required to prepare a response to the Senate Order 12 for Indexed Lists of Departmental or Agency Files. This is part of the government's ongoing commitment to give Australians greater access to relevant government information quickly and easily.
The report known as the ‘the Harradine Report’ was first instigated by then Senator Harradine in 1996. The original Senate Order was amended in 1998. The Senate Order 12 for Indexed Lists of Departmental and Agency Files on the Parliament of Australia website now requires departments and agencies to provide an indexed list of the titles of all relevant files on their websites.
The lists are tabled twice a year in:
- Spring sittings an indexed list of files is created for the preceding July to December period and
- Autumn sittings an indexed list of files is created for the preceding January to June period.
