Data Availability and Use Taskforce

The Australian Government has established a cross-portfolio taskforce in response to the Productivity Commission’s public Inquiry into Data Availability and Use. The Inquiry report is available on the Productivity Commission website.

The Data Availability and Use Taskforce will focus on preparing the Government’s response to the Productivity Commission’s report. Please visit the Data Availability and Use website for an overview of the Productivity Commission's Inquiry Report.

Improving the way Australia and Australians use and share data will:

  • encourage innovation and competition
  • improve the delivery of government services
  • better inform policy development
  • deliver greater choice and outcomes for individuals and society as a whole.

The Australian Government remains committed to privacy and security, governance and the management of risk.

The Data Availability and Use Taskforce welcomes the opportunity to advance Australia’s data system in cooperation with the public sector, academia, not-for-profits, and private industry.
