DTA provides update on BRII challenge

The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) is two months into its participation in the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science’s Business Research and Innovation Initiative (BRII).

The DTA is one of five challenge agencies for this year’s initiative, which provides funding for SMEs to develop innovative solutions to common government policy or service delivery challenges.

The agency sponsored Australian SME Next Paradigm for its Digital Capability Hub proposal. The company was awarded a $100,000 grant to conduct a feasibility study of the hub.

Digital Capability Hub is a proposed learning platform solution to help APS employees develop the skills required to support digital transformation.

Over the past two months, Next Paradigm has been testing and iterating prototypes of the platform, and conducting user interviews with APS staff to fine-tune the prototypes.

The prototyping will continue over the next month. During this time, Next Paradigm plans to develop an adoption strategy and a final report.

The current round of the BRII is offering a total of $2 million in funding to support feasibility studies and $10 million for proofs of concept across the five categories.

The DTA’s challenge is to improve government capability to help deliver world-leading digital services.

The other four categories are secure digital identity verification for people experiencing family and domestic violence; using intelligent data to transform tourism service delivery; managing the biosecurity of shipping containers; and automating complex determinations for Australian government information.
