Charity Sector Red Tape: Online Survey
18 March 2014 at 10:26 am

Despite being caught up in the Federal Government’s Repeal Day plans, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is calling on charities to share their experience of red tape in the sector through an online survey.

The ACNC said the survey, conducted by Ernst and Young, is part of a wider research project to measure the baseline of red tape imposed on the sector and to identify target areas for red tape reduction.

ACNC Commissioner, Susan Pascoe AM said the research is being undertaken as a direct response to recommendations from the sector confirmed at the Measuring and Reducing Red Tape in the Not for Profit Sector forum, held in December 2013.

“Participants at the forum, including charities, told us the importance of measuring the amount of red tape affecting the sector and recommended that we commission research into this.

“All registered charities are invited to complete the survey and I encourage you to share it with your networks.

“This research will help us to identify key areas of regulatory burden and it will give us a baseline from which to measure progress in reducing red tape,” Pascoe said.

The initial phase of the red tape reduction research looks into the regulatory and reporting burden on charities at the Commonwealth level.

Future research may look at the burden imposed by states and territories and the burden on the broader Not for Profit sector.

The research involves developing a conceptual framework, conducting case studies and mapping and costing red tape.

“In accordance with the ACNC’s commitment to providing information and data back to the sector, de-identified data obtained from the survey will be published and made publicly available on data.gov.au, “ Pascoe said. “All survey responses will be treated confidentially.”

The survey will close on Friday 11 April 2014.
