Have your questions on the Data Availability and Transparency Bill answered

About this Event

The Australian Government is working to develop better, more seamless services to the public. To do this, we need to modernise how we manage the wealth of information supplied by Australians to various government agencies.

The Office of the National Data Commissioner has released an exposure draft of the Data Availability and Transparency Bill and associated materials, and a discussion paper on the Accreditation Framework that has been proposed to control entry into the data sharing scheme. The legislative package seeks to overcome barriers preventing agencies from getting the most out of government data, by making it easier, more transparent and safer to share government data with the right people, for the right reasons.

After reading the materials on our website, you may still have questions about the reforms.

For example, you might be wondering whether your research organisation will be able to access government data under the scheme.

You might have questions about how the reforms will impact existing data sharing arrangements your agency has with other departments.

Maybe you are curious about what controls are in place to ensure that all sharing is done for the right reasons.

Whatever the case, this webinar provides the opportunity for you to have your questions about the Bill and the operating scheme answered.

It is important to us that the reforms meet community expectations, and one way of ensuring this is through continual engagement with you, our stakeholders. We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback.

We look forward to hearing from you!
