- Issues paper
- Draft report

What we’ve been asked to look at
The Australian Government has asked the Productivity Commission to develop a whole-of-government evaluation strategy for policies and programs affecting Indigenous Australians, to be used by all Australian Government agencies. The Commission will also review the performance of agencies against the strategy over time.
We will consult widely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, communities and organisations, and with all levels of government. We will also consult with non-Indigenous organisations and individuals responsible for administering and delivering relevant policies and programs.Read the Letter of Direction About the project
Issues paper release and initial submissions
The Commission released an issues paper to guide people in preparing a submission. It set out some of the issues and questions the Commission has identified as relevant at the early stage of the project. Participants should provide evidence to support their views, including data and specific examples where possible.
The paper was released on 26 June 2019.
Initial submissions were due by 23 August 2019.
Draft report release
The Commission will seek further information and feedback following the expected release of a draft report in May 2020.
Final report to Government
The final report is to be handed to the Australian Government in October 2020.
