Information about current projects
On 1 July 2018, the Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business (the department) implemented the Online Employment Services Trial, which delivers employment services to job seekers online. The trial was announced in January.
ORIMA Research, on behalf of the department, will conduct fieldwork evaluating the Trial. This research will help refine online employment services and help inform future policy. ORIMA will contact job seekers to participate in a survey about their experience of online employment services.
Participation in this research is voluntary, and Centrelink will not know whether a job seeker has taken part. Involvement in the research will not affect any Centrelink payments that a jobseeker is receiving. Information collected by ORIMA is protected by law under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
The surveys will be conducted over three waves. Respondents may be contacted to take part in one or more wave. The expected timing of the surveys are -
Wave 1: March to May 2019
Wave 2: June to August 2019
Wave 3: September to October 2019
Survey respondents will be provided with more specific information and instructions when contacted to arrange their participation in the evaluation. Respondents can also contact ORIMA Research via [email protected] or on 1800 883 345 for information about the survey.

Girls Make Your Move campaign
Prepared by ORIMA Research for the Department of Health (2019).
In 2016, the Department of Health launched the ‘Girls Make Your Move’ campaign in Australia. The campaign stems from on-going concerns and evidence that young women are doing less physical activity than recommended by physical activity guidelines, and that Australians are increasingly inactive, with associated health risks on the rise.
Survey on the replacement, reduction and refinement (3Rs) of the use of animals for scientific purposes in Australia
Prepared by ORIMA Research for the National Health and Medical Research Council (2018)
In 2017, ORIMA Research was commissioned by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) to conduct a survey on the replacement, reduction and refinement (3Rs) of the use of animals for scientific purposes in Australia. The survey was designed to obtain information about the development and adoption of the 3Rs in Australia, from individuals involved with the use of animals for scientific purposes in Australia. Three target groups were identified for the research: investigators, members of animal ethics committees, and institutional representatives. The survey results were part of the evidence used by NHMRC for the development of an Information Paper about the implementation of the 3Rs in Australia. The survey report, as well as the Information Paper published by NHMRC, are available on NHMRC’s website.
