Reducing the Provider Data Burden
The information authority
works with other organisations to reduce unnecessary data collection demands being placed upon further education and training providers.
During 2008 - 2010 much of this work was driven by the Data Burden Study carried out by Oakleigh Consulting
. The company was appointed by the information authority
to determine the amount of administration required of providers to meet external data requests. A number of criteria were used to identify unnecessary burden, including lack of consistency and transparency in requests, tight deadlines and lack of relevance to the provider.
A total of 117 providers contributed to the independent Data Burden study carried out by Oakleigh Consulting - either through in-depth interviews, responses to a detailed structured questionnaire or to a shorter e-survey.
An executive summary of the full report, entitled Identifying and Quantifying the Provider Data Burden Executive Summary was published in June 2008.
