Although current legislation does not require it, ORIC publishes a yearbook to share unique and critical information relevant to improving outcomes for Indigenous peoples in Australia. The content of this publication is more detailed than its contributions to the departmental annual reports. It includes case studies and data to illustrate major issues, and we report more fully on the solutions we have found and the work we are doing for long-term improvement. Some of the material is about work in progress, included to encourage feedback and discussion.
Although not required by legislation to produce an annual report, the Registrar believes it is appropriate and good practice to publish a yearbook to inform all clients and stakeholders about the work of ORIC.
ORIC has also contributed to the 2016–17 annual report of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PMC), available at pmc.gov.au.
