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

Open Opportunity Canberra brings together over 100 digital leaders from across the public sector to discuss, debate and define the future of digital services across the Australian 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 The immediate priority is an overhaul of its IT spending rules, tearing the public service from outdated procurement methodsand its risk-averse culture.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.

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.
