The Data Integration Partnership for Australia (DIPA) is made of several components. These include:
- Data infrastructure and integration delivered by Australian Bureau of Statistics and Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. These two bodies deliver the core technical infrastructure to support DIPA by providing tools to integrate and link data, including the production of enduring longitudinal and integrated data assets.
- Data assets are delivered by Department of Social Services (DSS); Department of Health (Health); Department of Education and Training (DoET); Department of Finance (Finance); and Office of National Intelligence.
- Data analytical units use integrated data to solve complex policy issues that cross over multiple portfolios and feed this analysis into policy delivery processes and improved service delivery. These units are led by DSS; Health; DoET; Department of the Environment and Energy; Department of Industry, Innovation and Science and Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C).
- Better communication and engagement about data initiatives, led by PM&C.
- Technical review and advice provided by Data61. Data61 provides assurance and advisory role to assist partner agencies to make informed decision taking into account the latest data developments and efficiencies afforded by new technologies.

Individual agencies are responsible for the delivery of their individual components. A Deputy Secretary level DIPA Board provides strategic oversight and coordination of the DIPA. The DIPA Board reports to the Secretaries’ Data Group.
