Federal Budget: OAIC down about $150k

Could have been worse I guess.

As reading a Portfolio Budget Statement has never been my forte, I can only tell you after a little help that buried away in the statement for the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner [PDF 176KB] is an allocation of $10.604 million for 2013-14 compared to $10.764 million for the current year. Staff levels in the 80-85 range. Key performance indicators for timeliness remain unambitious, to use a term I've thrown around before, but you can only do what you can do. Adequate resourcing might make a difference.

Program 1.1 key performance indicators
      Australian Government agencies comply with the requirements of the Information Publication Scheme and disclosure logs.
      Principles on open public sector information are promoted and understood across government.
      OAIC merits review and complaint handling processes meet timeliness and quality benchmarks.
      Information and education products on privacy, FOI and information policy meet stakeholder needs.
      The Information Advisory Committee and Privacy Advisory Committee are supported in their role of providing advice to the OAIC.
