Info watchdog looking at Centrelink 'faults'

6 January 2017

Information Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim has confirmed his office is assessing Centrelink's data matching activities.

'In 2017 we will be finalising an ongoing assessment of the privacy aspects of (the Human Services department's)... income data-matching program,' he said in a statement.

The assessments will be made public once finished.

He said there is no formal investigation under way.
