The Government's Chief Information Officer wants to find out if New Zealanders are prepared to let it share their personal data more easily.
The Privacy Act was drawn up 20 years ago and legislation is being debated in Parliament that would allow more sharing agreements.
Colin MacDonald says there is a tension between using personal information to enable better assistance and the protection of individual privacy.
Mr MacDonald says current legislation prohibits identifying a citizen in a consistent way across all government services.
He says in today's world, people may be more comfortable about how their information is used than two decades ago.
