RBA disclosure to one, to all

As Sean Parnell reports in The Australian today, the Reserve Bank appears to be the first Commonwealth agency to introduce a "disclosure log" ahead of the Freedom of Act requirement that commences on 1 May, posting this notice on its website:
"In keeping with the intentions of the Act, and the Government's policy objective of enhancing a culture of disclosure across agencies, the Bank's policy generally is to release (via this website) documents provided to applicants in response to FOI applications. Such releases will be made publicly available at the same time as documents are released to the applicant. Facilities to inspect documents to which access has been granted are available."
