Opposition pushes digital difference in govt services

A Dutton government would revive automation and compliance technologies in a bid to curb wait times, personalise services and fight fraud, shadow digital minister Paul Fletcher told the ICT industry on Wednesday.

Mr Fletcher sought to distance the political parties on government tech, saying the Coalition would return to large technology upgrades, more contractors and a culture of innovation in the public service.

He said that culture is being hindered and service levels are suffering because of Government Services minister Bill Shorten’s “ferocious politicisation” of the Income Compliance Program, better known as Robodebt.
