Round table reporting

In March 2010, Round Table Reporting was implemented by the departments regions. Round Table Reporting was a key recommendation that evolved from a project Improving the Way we Work with Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations. The aims are to:

  • Provide ACCOs with an opportunity to talk strategically and holistically about their organisation and community, rather than only service provision.
  • Improve the consistency and quality of information being reported by ACCOs and provide/receive feedback.
  • Reduce the administrative burden on ACCOs by using the meetings to address and replace some current reporting requirements.

Key feedback from regional visits during April 2011 - July 2011 highlights that:

  • Round table reporting is being received positively in all regions and with ACCOs.
  • Round table reporting has provided a platform for strengthening relationships between senior departmental and ACCO staff.
  • Meetings are tailored to the needs of each ACCO and largely focus on strategic discussions inclusive of information sharing, issue resolution and planning discussions about flexible funding opportunities.
  • Whilst round table reporting is currently not reducing the administration and reporting burden on ACCOs, some regions have commenced internal work to identify how existing meetings with ACCOs may be streamlined.

Further information on the Simplifying Funding and Reporting for Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations initiative can be obtained by contacting the Lead Negotiator for your service agreement within your local regional Department of Human Services or Department of Health branch.
