Permit stakeholders such as other government agencies and not-for-profit organisations limited access to C3MS to facilitate cooperation, collaboration and transparency.
The South Australian Government accepts this recommendation in principle.
All C3MS-related recommendations and their full acceptance are subject to the outcome of the C3MS review initiated in response to recommendation 20.
Providing other government agencies and not-for-profit organisations varying levels of access to C3MS will lead to improved availability and sharing of information and therefore better outcomes for families and children receiving services from multiple partners.
To define and design varying levels of access to C3MS, scoping and investigation work is required to identify key partners who would be granted access and determine the most appropriate and feasible technological solutions.
The department has commenced providing other government agencies with relevant limited C3MS access via the Data Sharing legislation.
Currently, the Department for Education and Child Development, Child Wellbeing Practitioners have remote access to C3MS.
Staff from other government departments working in the Multi Agency Assessment Unit also have limited access to C3MS with work underway to extend access to CFARN workers.
Further work is necessary prior to extending access to not-for-profit organisations.
