Effective engagement with public sector agencies has been a key priority for OVIC since establishment in September 2017. Our goal is to embed in the Victorian public sector a culture that promotes fair access to information while ensuring its proper use and protection.
Over the past twelve months OVIC developed a Stakeholder Engagement Strategy to guide our engagement activities and complement our Strategic Plan.
Stakeholder engagement survey
In order to measure and assess the effectiveness of our engagement activities a short online survey was developed and deployed to Victorian public sector agencies in October 2019.
The survey was designed to capture feedback from all agencies involved in the implementation of the Victorian Protective Data Security Framework (VPDSF) and information security, privacy and processing freedom of information requests.
The survey comprised three key branches:
- freedom of information;
- privacy; and
- information security.
Participants were asked to complete the relevant section where their agency has most frequent interaction.
A representative sample from all levels and roles including officers, managers and executives was surveyed across government to ensure we have a statistically valid representative data set.
The survey is strictly confidential and results will be gathered in aggregated form only to enhance communication, help us set our strategic priorities and inform the design of future engagement activities. The results will form a benchmark against which future results can be assessed and measured.
