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

The Victorian Government will communicate their ICT strategy rollout. The Information Technology Strategy is a priority for the Victorian government. It leads the technology changes required to enable their ambitious public-sector reform agenda. The work of the past 12 months has set the foundation for the next stages in delivering a more cohesive approach to government’s use of technology, and improving how Victorians engage 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 The immediate priority is an overhaul of its IT spending rules, tearing the public service from outdated procurement methodsand its risk-averse culture.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 opens the path for a surge of opportunities for all suppliers across the technology and digital industries to engage with, collaborate, and sell to government
