GOVIS Lunchtime Forum - Reflecting on COVID-19 - Data System Impacts

Fri, 28th May 2021, 12:30-1:30pm, Meeting rooms G.02 and ONLINE, MBIE Head Office, 15 Stout St, Wellington

#1 in a series of forums reflecting on the impact of COVID-19 on government information and technology.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been one of the most significant events to affect New Zealand in recent history. All of us have been affected in some way. 

This forum looks at how COVID-19 impacted the New Zealand government data system. What have we learned from the COVID-19 experience? What worked well? What didn’t? Were the changes we made during the pandemic sustainable? And what practical things can we do to make the system better in the future?

We’ll start off with a presentation from Kevin Sweeney and Jocelyn Morrison, from Stats NZ. This will be based on Stats NZ’s COVID-19 Lessons Learned report, which was released in December. We’ll follow this up with some small group discussion where you can talk about what happened in your agency and share ideas for action.

This will be a hybrid event. You can come in person or join online via MS Teams. Note that in-person spaces are limited and people who work for GOVIS member agencies will be given priority.
