The reporting on targets will show progress to close the gap, relative to non‑Indigenous Australians. National trajectories for each numeric target will be published on the Closing the Gap website on commencement of this Agreement and subsequently on the Productivity Commission Dashboard following its development. These will show the expected rate of progress and help inform whether parties are on track to meet the targets.
Available baseline data for each state and territory will be published on the Closing the Gap website on commencement of this Agreement and subsequently on the Productivity Commission Dashboard following its development to enable monitoring of each jurisdiction’s progress and contribution towards achievement of targets under this Agreement. The Productivity Commission will also publish baseline data for any new target agreed under this Agreement.
Government Parties commit to sharing quantitative and qualitative data, other than that which is precluded by privacy requirements or commercial-in-confidence, to meet the reporting requirements of this Agreement and any associated reviews, annual priority setting or policy adjustments, to be properly informed by evidence.
Parties commit to undertaking actions if a target is not on track to be achieved or if one of the Productivity Commission’s three-yearly reviews indicates (Section 9C) that achievement of the target is not on track. Actions to get the target back on track will be included in Jurisdictional Implementation Plans.
