The Outback Communities Authority (OCA) is dedicated to improving the lives of those people who live and work in outback South Australia. In doing its work the OCA will often make decisions that have the potential to affect the lives of those people.
It is the genuine desire of the OCA to give people who live and work in the outback opportunities to have meaningful input into the decision making process. The OCA also wants outback communities to be aware of the reasons behind the decisions it makes, and the effect those decisions might have on them.
Community Engagement - Our Commitment Policy sets out how, when and with whom the OCA will consult. It describes the various ways the OCA will seek to engage with the community. Using state/local newspapers, electronic and hard copy correspondence, and convening public meetings are just a few examples.
