Data Collection Solution reference and working groups

APRA formed three groups to provide guidance and direction for key decisions and how to implement the transition to the new Data Collection Solution:

  • Strategic Industry Reference Group
  • Technical Working Group
  • Software Vendor Working Group

We will continue to engage with industry through these groups throughout implementation and roll-out.

Strategic Industry Reference Group

The Strategic Industry Reference Group is an advisory group to support the new Data Collection Solution that will deliver a replacement solution for the D2A tool through which reporting entities meet their reporting obligations by submitting data to APRA.

Membership appointment - We selected members for the Strategic Industry Reference Group based on personal merit, and recommendations made by industry bodies 

Membership representation - Members are representative of stakeholders across APRA-regulated industries and be appointed in a personal capacity for the duration of the DCS project.

Additional  attendees - The Strategic Industry Reference Group may invite observers to attend meetings. Members will be able to nominate one delegate to attend meetings of the Technical Working Group in their absence.
