A privacy management plan identifies specific, measurable goals and targets, and sets out how an agency will meet its compliance obligations under APP 1.2. The Australian Government Agencies Privacy Code requires agencies to have a privacy management plan, and to measure and document performance against the plan at least annually.

We've developed an Interactive Privacy Management Plan (PMP), a tool to assist agencies to assess the current state of their privacy practices and set privacy goals and targets. You can refer to the ‘Interactive Privacy Management Plan Explained’ companion guide, and to our ‘How to prepare your agency’s privacy management plan’ webinar and accompanying slides for information about how to use this interactive tool.

The templates above are designed for agencies, but organisations wanting to improve their privacy management may also use them. For guidance specific to organisations, see Privacy management plan template (for organisations).
