Guidelines for outsourcing in the Victorian public sector: Accompanying guide

This guide serves as an accompaniment to the Guidelines for outsourcing in the Victorian public sector – Checklist, which aims to assist Victorian public sector bodies and their contracted service providers to effectively manage the privacy and data security of official information (public sector data and personal information) in outsourcing arrangements.

The checklist provides a high level overview of the matters that ought to be considered at each stage of an outsourcing arrangement, while this guide explores each question in more detail and explains the relevant requirements under the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014. The headings in this guide correspond with the question numbers in the checklist for ease of reference.
