Submission to the Queensland Productivity Commission on: Service Delivery in remote and discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities

The Inquiry into service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders closely aligns with the CIS’s focus on Indigenous service delivery and achieving better outcomes for Indigenous peoples as part of our Prosperity Project. The Prosperity Project is a program of research focused on the practical measures that will enable Indigenous communities to improve outcomes and bring about meaningful and sustainable change. As part of this research, we are looking at how innovation in the approach taken to service delivery and a focus on co-accountability in evaluation could lead to improved outcomes for Indigenous people.

We believe the five key areas the inquiry is investigating are important and have some suggestions to further refine the focus and scope.
