The Commission has also undertaken a Stakeholder Survey to assess how stakeholders perceived the relevance, analytical rigour, and clarity of the Productivity Commission’s work over the last three years (2015 to 2017). The survey also assesses the effectiveness of our participatory processes, our openness and transparency.

The survey will be conducted every three years, with the next survey report expected to be released in 2020.
