Defence’s $515 million data project was poorly justified and went off track almost immediately, according to external reviews of the project that have uncovered poor governance, conflicts of interest and a large payment to systems integrator KPMG for work that was not completed.

The reviews, undertaken by Anchoram Consulting and provided to Independent Senator David Pocock, have cast more light on the ambitious project to better leverage Defence information in line with its first ever data strategy.

Also known as ICT2284, the OneDefence Data program was rocked by a breakdown in negotiations for a supporting private cloud system to share the sensitive data last year, while its lead data expert left within 19 months.
