The OAIC commissioned ORIMA Research to conduct a dual survey – the PSI survey, together with a survey of Australian Government agencies on compliance with their obligations under the Information Publication Scheme. The PSI survey was structured around the eight Principles on open public sector information (Open PSI principles) that were published by the OAIC in 2011.
The IPS/PSI survey was carried out by ORIMA Research in April and May 2012. It was completed by 191 agencies (78%) of the 245 that were approached. The OAIC complemented the PSI survey by conducting focus group discussions with a variety of Australian Government agencies.
The data has been compiled by ORIMA Research from their Data Pack Report for the PSI Survey.
