Further consultation


Further consultation with system stakeholders will focus on how best to reduce respondent burden while improving data quality within the NASIS. Consultation will focus on identifying opportunities for innovation and improved coordination. Consultation will also explore options for effectively resourcing the NASIS into the future. The additional information sought from stakeholders includes:


    1. If the dimensions of ‘data quality’ adequately capture areas of opportunity for reducing respondent burden and increasing data quality in the NASIS.

    2. Considering the statistical cycle, where the key opportunities are for innovation to reduce respondent burden and increase data quality in the NASIS:

        planning

        content development

        data collection

        data processing

        analysis

        dissemination

        evaluation

    3. If there are existing innovations that could be adopted or adapted to meet the needs of stakeholders of the NASIS.

    4. How the needs of different stakeholders of the NASIS can be best coordinated to reduce respondent burden and improve data quality.

    5. Considering the capability component of resourcing, where the highest priorities are for improving coordination in the NASIS:

        People

        Methods

        Processes

        Systems

        Standards/Frameworks

        Other resources

    6. If there are any other innovation and collaboration opportunities that could improve the coordination and efficiency of the NASIS.

These areas requiring additional comment will be further explored in the second consultation phase of the NASR, with recommendations to be released in the NASR's final report.
