Event description

Description

Changes to the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 will require councils to collect additional information. Rather than amend the 68 current dog registers, the Board will build a centralised, online system that will incorporate a number of different databases.

Dogs and Cats Online (DACO) will be a one-stop-shop for dog (and cat in six councils) registration, dog attack incidents, dog control orders, microchip and desexing information plus the new register of dog and cat breeders. DACO will have a significant impact on council services and regulatory service processes (mainly) and lower impacts on finance and IT units.

DACO will provide pet owners the capability to register and manage their pets’ information, through an online portal. DACO will also.

  • Give council officers access to online information 24/7, identifying and returning dogs home faster;

  • Reduce the number of owners who use council staff (either by phone or at the front counter) to process dog registration payments;

  • Centralise and reduce costs with renewal and reminder notices; and

  • Give council officers access to information about lost dogs from other council areas and otherwise improve council services.

The LGA Board endorsed DACO, subject to all costs and risks being borne by the Board , and the establishment of ongoing structures to engage and consult with councils about the database.

To support councils with the changes the Board would like to invite IT, finance, customer service and regulatory officers to attend a DACO information session. This session will provide councils opportunity to discuss potential implementation issues and to ask questions of the contracted Project Manager, Stephanie Jeuken.
