Exposure draft

The Australian Government is working to deliver better, more seamless services to the public. To do this, we need to modernise how we manage the wealth of information supplied by Australians to various government agencies.

We are seeking submissions on the exposure draft of the Data Availability and Transparency Bill and explanatory materials, and an Accreditation Framework discussion paper. Submissions are open between 14 September and 6 November 2020.

You can also find a second independent Privacy Impact Assessment that examined the privacy implications of the Bill, and see our response.

On 14 October 2020 we hosted a webinar to answer your questions about the Bill. Follow the link to view a recording and transcript of the webinar.
