Deliver Phase 2018

Boost collaboration between government and the ICT sector

Growing Jobs and Business

Initiative

The joint NT Government/NT ICT Industry Association Working Group will identify and progress actions to increase collaboration between government and the ICT sector.

Overview

The NT ICT Industry Association has advocated to government on a range of issues, seeking changes that will improve outcomes for association members.

A joint working group is progressing an open dialogue to examine the issues and seek options for collaborative outcomes.

Mutually agreed approaches and tasks, including a revised Industry Engagement Plan, will be jointly developed over 2018.

Benefits

Government agencies and the ICT Industry Association will share knowledge and ideas to be better aligned and find ways to enhance local industry opportunities from government business and programs.

Overall benefits can accrue through efficient cost effective government services and growth of a competitive and capable local digital industry.

Re-establishing an Industry Engagement Plan will provide more certainty and assist industry planning.

2019 progress update

The joint NTG/NT ICT Industry Association Working Group is progressing actions to increase collaboration between government and the local ICT sector. An ICT industry engagement guide for NT Government agencies has been drafted and a contemporary guide for the ICT industry to engage with NT Government agencies is proposed for development.

A planned independent review of government procurement of ICT services in 2019 is anticipated to inform further actions for the working group to examine.
