The Data Exchange Protocols is a support manual intended to guide the consistent implementation of the Data Exchange framework. The protocols provide practical information for managers and front-line staff to integrate data definitions and requirements into existing administrative practices.
Program specific guidance provides practical information for managers and front-line staff on the data expected for their program. It also assist them in integrating SCORE (Standard Client/Community Outcome Reporting) outcomes data collection into existing service and administrative practices.
Program specific guidance is divided into nine documents:
- Department of Social Services
- Attorney Generals Department
- Department of Health and Aged Care
- Department of Home Affairs
- Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
- Government of New South Wales
If organisations are unsure as to what program specific guidance applies to them, they can check their grant agreement, or contact their Funding Arrangement Manager.
An Easy English version of the Data Exchange Protocols is available. Four documents have been developed to support people who find reading English difficult.
- What is the Data Exchange?
- Using the Data Exchange
- The Partnership Approach
- Recording Client Outcomes in the Data Exchange
