Focussing on guiding new engagement strategies for technology and digital industries to sell to and collaborate with government

The Australian Government is going through a tech spend rethink, reforming its information technology procurement rules. The immediate priority is an overhaul of its IT spending rules, tearing the public service from outdated procurement methods and its risk-averse culture.

In alignment with the government’s aim to be “more porous” and capture the great ideas from “outside” the Open Opportunity forums in November open the path for a surge of opportunities for all suppliers across the technology and digital industries to engage with, collaborate, and sell to government.

Program Overview

Open Opportunity forums aim to guide the technology and digital industries with granular and detailed government policy changes and new procurement rules, to develop more effective government engagement strategies.

New South Wales has streaked ahead of its peers in the delivery of digital platforms across government and the transformation of the state’s public service infrastructure. Many pilot projects have delivered early returns, and driven the direction of new policy.

With key ministerial participation from federal and state governments, the Open Opportunity Sydney forum aims to:

• Gain a clear vision and timeline to how government will consider new technologies or approaches with substantial benefit to federal, state and local government services

• Review the open data inventories to be submitted by departments and agencies

• Examine the development of the frameworks for Unsolicited Proposals(UP) policy

• Address the protection of the proprietary interests of the technology companies

 • Examine new opportunities to access key government procurement panels

 • Provide update on key state and municipal policies geared to engage further with the private sector to adopt new technologies to drive their services

Who will be there

  • Mid-tier Australian tech Chief Executive Officers
  • High value technology suppliers to government
  • Public sector procurement officers and technology project managers
  • Chief Data Officers and Chief Digital Officers
  • Policy advisers and Commercial Directors
  • Digital transformation specialists and Business development officers
  • Content producers and service designers
