Indexed lists of departmental and agency files

In addition each department and agency is required, as part of Standing orders of the Senate to provide, access to an indexed list of the titles of all relevant files, including new parts of existing files, created from 1 January 1998 in the central office of that department or agency (departments and agencies may choose to maintain online an indexed list of all new files created from that date or to maintain online an indexed list of, as a minimum, the most recent year’s file creations).

Procedural orders and resolutions of the Senate of continuing effect can be seen at Orders for documents:
