  • APRA Fund Communications Reference Group

    The APRA Fund Communications Reference Group was established to co-design improvements to the way the ATO communicates, engages and collaborates with the APRA fund community.

    This short-term group will act as a sounding board to:

    • identify, consider and address irritants and co-design improvements to how the superannuation industry and the ATO communicate, engage and collaborate
    • validate current strategies to confirm their value and assess if they should become, or continue to be, part of our way of operating
    • prioritise changes and opportunities into:
      • grass roots – 'quick win' low touch improvements
      • tactical – medium-term low touch improvements which may require small technology changes
      • transformation – strategic and aspirational improvements which may require investment from us and industry.

    Through this group, we will identify principles that can be applied to future communication and engagement activities with the APRA regulated fund audience to ensure information is received and consumed in the best possible way.

    Finding are reported through the Superannuation Administration Stakeholder Group.

    The ATO consultation protocol underpins the ATO’s consultation framework arrangements.
