The Papua New Guinea government is looking at hiring an Indian data intelligence company which is already in the country helping businesses.
The company, Social Cops, is helping businesses here with the help of United Nation Development Programme (UNDP)
In a report, the Department of National Planning and Monitoring said it is looking at how Social Cops can help the National Data Centre improve data gathering and management.
The report says a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework has been formed to manage the gathering and sharing of government data.
A central system is being set up for this purpose.
Last year, chief statistician Roko Koloma said the lack of statistical units in government departments have delayed government reports.
