The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) leads a high quality national statistical service. One of the ways this is advanced is through the development and sharing of quality management initiatives used within the ABS that may be applied by other organisations in their management of data.

The ABS has released a series of information papers relating to the quality management of data. The topics of these papers focus on assessing and declaring the quality of statistical products, and managing the quality of statistical processes.

This paper follows on from the Quality Management of Statistical Risk Using Quality Gates, Dec 2010, (cat no. 1540.0), information paper in that it too examines statistical risk and how to manage it. However, the previous paper discusses a mitigation strategy for reducing statistical risks (quality gates), whereas this paper discusses contingency plans for statistical processes when risks are realised. The ABS calls these contingency plans quality incident response plans (QIRPs).
