Data Integration Involving Commonwealth Data for Statistical and Research Purposes: Governance and Institutional Arrangements - 5

Jump to: navigation, search

Survey Liaison Officers (SLOs) have been established in many Commonwealth agencies to provide a central contact of information and expertise in statistical collections involving businesses. Survey Liaison Officers are part of an Australian Government initiative established by the Prime Minister in 1997 to reduce duplication, minimise the burden on business, and ensure that statistical data collections involving businesses are fit-for-purpose.

The role of the existing network of Survey Liaison Officers across Commonwealth agencies will be expanded to provide a central contact of information and expertise in data integration projects involving Commonwealth data. This network will be able to share information on good practice and help minimise duplication.
