Information publication scheme

About the scheme

Established as part of the FOI Act, the Information Publication Scheme (IPS) requires agencies to publish a broad range of information on their websites, and to make that information available online where possible.

For the purposes of the PID, the AAF Company is administered by the Department of Defence (as per the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013).

AAF Company IPS Plan

The AAF Company’s IPS Plan describes how we propose to comply with the IPS requirements, as prescribed by paragraph 8(1) of the FOI Act.

See our IPS Plan.

Who we are

What we do



The AAF Company’s primary focus is the provision of amenity funding support to Army members, operating through a system of annual bids from unit commanders and associations for loans and grants to fund local amenity initiatives not provided at Departmental expense.

We also provide economically priced, quality holiday accommodation for use by eligible people and to promote other Service-owned facilities.
