In contrast to the ISG, the Act allows government to use the information held by agencies and organisations in secure, strategic and innovative ways that benefit the broader South Australian population.

The Act enables South Australian public sector agencies to share data with each other and/or with other trusted entities or non-government organisations under the conditions of individual data sharing agreements.

The Act:

  • is a law that applies to all public sector agencies
  • promotes the use of public sector data as a public asset
  • enables data-driven government to make evidence-based decisions and evaluate policy, programs and services.
