About the PBC Survey 2019

Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs) are very important to the future of Australia. In 2019, a new survey of PBCs is being run that will inform PBC policy, governance, and development opportunities.

Three national organisations have come together to support the survey. The National Native Title Council (NNTC) works on behalf of its Members in the native title sector to help Prescribed Body Corporates (PBC) grow and develop. The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) is a world leader in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is the national science agency. The survey will be run by NNTC and AIATSIS staff, supported by scientific advice from the CSIRO.

This survey is intended for PBC directors, CEOs or other staff to complete on behalf of their PBCs, but it is up to each PBC to decide how and who they want to do the survey for them. The survey is about PBC goals, activities and needs, and only public information is needed. Survey information will be kept in secure storage at the three organisations.

The survey results will be made available to PBCs and the wider public in reports written by the organisations involved. This will help support PBC sector planning and development. By showing where the needs are, it can also assist local PBC strategic planning and funding applications. Further AIATSIS, NNTC, and CSIRO presentations, factsheets, and research articles may also use the results in the public reports.

The survey is part of wider projects and partnerships between NNTC, AIATSIS, and CSIRO funded by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet of the Australian Government.
