You expect government services to be simple, seamless, and fast —just like your everyday experience of shopping and banking.
My Government has taken an important step toward meeting this expectation through releasing a discussion paper on new data sharing reforms.
These reforms will put in place the rules we need to build the foundations for a secure, connected and seamless experience of government services.
These new rules will mean you spend less time talking to the government when it comes to accessing services.
We are committed to getting these new rules right so we’ve sought the views of the community and stakeholders, including representatives groups, privacy experts, businesses and research institutions to help shape the policies outlined in this discussion paper.
I encourage everyone across our community to have their say to help refine the new legislative framework so we can make the most of this important national asset to benefit all Australians.
