Our publication scheme describes and categorises information routinely available from the Office. It has been developed to give the community greater access to information held by government organisations. There is no charge for providing copies of the information contained in the publication scheme. Information in our publication scheme is grouped and accessible through seven classes:
Our core business is complaints management and we exist to ensure that Queensland Government organisations act lawfully and fairly in their dealings with the community and are accountable for their actions.
Read more about us.
We have three main roles:
1. to give people a timely, effective and independent way to have administrative actions of agencies investigated
2. to improve the quality of decision-making and administrative practice in government agencies
3. oversight of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2010.
We investigate complaints about the actions and decisions of state government departments and agencies (including state schools and TAFE), local councils and public universities. Our complaints assessment and investigation service is free and independent.

Financial reporting information is available in a number of publications. Our annual report provides a summary of our financial and corporate performance for the year. The report enables the Queensland community and government to assess our financial and operational performance.
The Service Delivery Statement (SDS) provides the community and other interested parties with information on how we propose to use our financial resources and the outcomes to be achieved in the following financial year. The SDS also provides a summary of achievements against the previous year's published budget and planned outcomes.
We demonstrate our priorities and accountability to parliament and the community through a number of corporate documents. Our services are aligned with our strategic objectives as outlined in our Strategic Plan.
