Easier interactions with ORIC

We are working to overhaul the IT system underlying the Register of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporations. Our highest priority is to make it easier for corporations to interact with us and meet their legal obligations. Some aspects are set by the legislation, but there's a lot of scope to adapt the system to better serve your needs.

We have engaged PwC's Indigenous Consulting to help us learn more about your experience interacting with the register. There will be opportunities to provide feedback on design concepts, language and information. We will post updates on how you can participate on this page.

Current opportunities to participate

Help ORIC understand more about the privacy of your members

Earlier in the year, PwC's Indigenous Consulting assisted us in understanding what improvements could be made to the register and online lodgement portal.

We heard loud and clear that privacy and personal information were important to many corporations across Australia. We are asking for your help in understanding exactly what privacy issues matter to you the most, by taking less than 5 minutes to participate in this short survey.

We appreciate how busy you are, but the opinions and ideas that you can share are very important to us, and will be used to make changes and decisions into the future.

As this survey is about the private information of corporation members, we also ask and encourage that you share the survey with your members. 

You can open or share this link to complete the survey:

Engagement so far

A better understanding

Before we started rebuilding the system, we were keen to gain a good understanding of what you want:

  • when you lodge information—as a director, contact person/secretary or other person that directors have authorised
  • when you access your corporation's information—as a logged-in member, director, contact person/secretary
  • when we share your information—on the Public Register

As well as conducting several one-on-one interviews with people from corporations across the spectrum (of size, remoteness, accesssibility and so on) PwCIC made a short survey so that anyone who has used the public register or the online lodgment portal could help improve ORIC's online services—in under ten minutes.
