The Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) is striving to engage more effectively with our stakeholder groups, and as a priority for 2014 – 2015 we have embarked on a stakeholder engagement initiative by consulting with a range of our stakeholders and engaging a consultant to provide a comprehensive strategy and recommendations to inform this important project.
The IPC has considered the outcomes of the stakeholder engagement strategy and incorporated a number of the recommendations into the IPC 2014 – 2015 Business Plan. Please find below the communications priorities that have been agreed on by the organisation:
