DTA signs permanent MoU with AIIA
The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has signed an agreement with the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) aimed at continuing the collaboration between the government and the ICT sector.
The new memorandum of understanding (MoU) is an extension of the initial agreement reached between the AIIA and the DTA in March 2018. While the initial agreement was to be approved annually, the latest MoU is set to last indefinitely.
Under the agreement, the DTA and AIIA will continue to exchange information, experiences and expertise aimed at improving outcomes for people and businesses using government digital services.
Both parties will lead discussion and introduction of ICT technology and best practices between government and industry, and collaborate on ways to increase skills in Australia’s ICT industry and champion women in technology.
DTA CEO Randall Brugeaud welcomed the ongoing collaboration with the ICT industry. “The importance of digital in enabling government service delivery really came to the fore in 2020. Australia’s ICT industry strongly supported the government’s COVID-19 response and is continuing to provide support as we move into the recovery phase,” he said.
“We look forward to working with industry, including through the AIIA, to deliver essential services to all Australians.”
