Perhaps the most appropriate question is to ask how we can minimise the effort required? We should look for by-product information - harvest from web-sites and other publications. This would not reduce the risk however it would mitigate the impact of the risk realisation. re: There is a risk that the IPS will be seen by agencies as just an additional compliance chore to add to their existing list – Annual Reports, Senate lists of files, etc. How can we minimise this risk?

As the OIC is staffed we hope to become actively involved in this debate about the role of IPS and equivalents. In the meantime, I am happy to handle any enquiries/liaison.

If the IPS can go some way to addressing this red tape then there is potential for a net gain in productivity from its implementation. Ben Eric,

from my experience – access to data by AG from AG is very time consuming – there are numerous hurdles in terms of data licenses, custodianship, cost recovery, maintenance, fit-for-purpose, liability worries. If the IPS can go some way to addressing this red tape then there is potential for a net gain in productivity from its implementation.
