On 3 December 2015, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet released the Public Sector Data Management Report.
The report established a roadmap to make better use of public data and make it easier for the Australian Public Service to use, publish and share public data.
Since then, Australian Government entities have worked collaboratively with PM&C’s Public Data Branch to progress implementation of the recommendations of the report.
On 22 July 2016, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet published the Public Sector Data Management Implementation Report. The Implementation Report outlines the initiatives and outputs that have been undertaken to date to meet the recommendations of the report and further the public data agenda.
Implementation of the roadmap has been achieved through cross-agency collaboration and under the leadership of the Secretaries Data Group, Deputy Secretaries Data Group and the Data Champions Network.
Notably, significant work has been undertaken to progress cross-agency data projects by the departments of Human Services, Health, the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Environment, Infrastructure and Regional Development, Industry, Innovation and Science and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
In particular, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Data61 have been critical in supporting Australian Government entities to overcome barriers to data sharing and integration.
