Contact Officers are the first point of contact for advice on FOI, IPS or privacy matters related to their agency. The OAIC strongly encourages each agency to have Contact Officers at a senior level for each of these areas. In some agencies these functions may be handled by the same person.
ICON meetings are held regularly throughout the year and provide Contact Officers with the opportunity to receive updates on the work of the OAIC and developments in the FOI, IPS and privacy areas. It also provides an opportunity for networking with colleagues in other agencies who may be dealing with similar issues in relation to FOI, the IPS or privacy. Generally, these meetings are held in Canberra.
The Australian Government has announced the OAIC will be disbanded by 1 January 2015. For more information on this please see the Statement by Commissioners.
There are plans to retain a network for Privacy Contact Officers. Over the next few months, the OAIC will be in touch with ICON members about the future of the network. We are interested to hear how we can support you in the future. Email any suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
