Draft Data Sharing Agreement Template

A draft Data Sharing Agreement template is available for download. Note this template is for general use and is not tied to the forthcoming Data Availability and Transparency legislation.

The draft template is designed to help Government agencies produce agreements to confidently share data in a way that is safe, timely and transparent. The template is based on the National Data Commissioner’s Best Practice Guide to Applying the Data Sharing Principles. The agreement has been developed in consultation with stakeholders and draws on existing agreements. The template is ‘legislation agnostic’, meaning it can be used for general purposes and is not tied to the forthcoming Data Availability and Transparency legislation.

The template is designed to be broadly applicable, but some aspects of the agreement may need to be modified to suit specific requirements.  We would appreciate any feedback on this draft as we look to align a version under the proposed legislation – please provide your feedback through our Contact Us form.
