Participation in the DATA Scheme continues to grow as shown in the Office of the National Data Commissioner’s (ONDC) Implementation Pipeline update below.
New guidance to develop a data inventory
The ONDC has released a new guide to developing a data inventory. There are now 56 organisations that have taken the step of onboarding to Dataplace. Once on board, you can use Dataplace to make a request for data collected by Australian Government agencies and make a data sharing agreement. Dataplace is also the place to go if you want to apply for accreditation to participate in the DATA Scheme. If you want to see who is already accredited, check out our Register of Accredited Entities.
In upcoming events below, we have included the ONDC webinars where you can learn more about the DATA Scheme.
New guidance to help Scheme participants – costs
Under the DATA Scheme, Australian Government agencies may charge fees for services performed when dealing with a data sharing request. The ONDC new guidance requires that any fees charged are on a cost recovery basis.
One of the functions of the National Data Commissioner is to handle complaints about the DATA Scheme. To make a complaint, please go to the Contact us page or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The new guidance provides information for Scheme participants and others about how the Commissioner will handle complaints.
