Women’s Refuge pleased with announcement on ICLD collection

Women’s Refuge pleased with announcement on ICLD collection

Media Release
24th May 2017

Women’s Refuge welcomes the Government’s announcement of a new project that will see the Privacy Commissioner, the Government Chief Information Officer and the NGO sector working together to ensure that the new system for collecting and storing Individual Client Level data is secure and robust.

“It is pleasing to see the Minister and Government slowing the process to ensure data collection and storage will be rigorous and secure, and that our client’s information will remain safe,” says Women’s Refuge Chief Executive Dr Ang Jury.

Refuge raised some concern that the uncertainty around data collection, breech in privacy and new requirements could compromise the new Outcome Agreements contracts that are to commence in July this year, however NGOs will not be required to collect any information until the project is completed.

“We are familiar with and work with contract variations frequently, so it is a relief that we can continue to help support the 40,000 women and children who need our help annually without fear that their safety and privacy will be breeched, or that our funding could be compromised.”

This work will also include the development of a Purpose Statement that will cover issues the Privacy Commissioner has raised, for example; the purposes for the data collection, the intended uses of the data, and who will have access to and use of the data.
