As a general observation in relation to current policy issues explored in this consultation, CPRC notes the current lack of consideration in the Issues Paper of the appropriate notice and consent standards for data sharing between entities, particularly if the data is identifiable or includes personal information of consumers of government services. Given CPRC’s research findings of consumer and community preferences when it comes to data sharing, the Government may benefit from reviewing this research, in particular in relation to the need to provide individuals with greater protection, transparency and control over how their data is shared and used.
