On Friday the 26 May Connect South hosted a forum with the aim of updating Otago providers on matters relating to ICLD.
Veronica Bennett, a member of ComVoices ICLD Working Group provided an update on where things were with MSD’s ICLD collection.
Here’s the presentation from the day.Connect presentation ICLD updated
Things have continued to unfold since, here’s an update on development:
In the presentation Veronica noted the announcement re the handing of the work over to Social Investment Agency (SIA) to form a working group -www.beehive.govt.nz/release/next-steps-individual-client-level-data
Brenda Pilott for ComVoices met soon after the announcement and her understanding is that ComVoices would be part of developing the ToR. There has been no word from SIA about the formation of the working group. The Privacy Commissioner hadn’t been asked for input last week.
ComVoices will continue to advocate for this process being managed as promised.
The Social Investment Unit transmogrified into Social Investment Agency so it is possible this has delayed progress.
The Privacy Commissioner’s Inquiry Into The Ministry Of Social Development’s Collection Of Individual Client-level Data From Ngos is available online.
