Australian Government Information Management Office, The Australian Public Service Big Data Strategy (Aug. 2013) (full-text).
This Big Data Strategy is intended for Australian Government agency senior executives with responsibility for delivering services and developing policy. It outlines future work by the Government that will assist agencies to make better use of their data assets whilst ensuring that the Government continues to protect the privacy rights of individuals.
The development of a Big Data Strategy was identified in the APS ICT Strategy 2012-2015 which highlighted the need for a whole-of-government approach to big data to enhance data analytics capability of agencies in support of improved service delivery and the development of better policies. The Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO), within the Department of Finance and Deregulation, leads this work.
