Federal Government must rethink funding model to support technology in Australia’s public sector


"Perhaps the government should consider a separate technology fund, established outside normal portfolio lines, to reduce technical debt, focus on digital uplift, allow coherent security practices across portfolios, and build and manage the underlying sovereign technology asset base for government. A separate funding mechanism or entity could offer scope to innovate and to build the cadre of skilled engineers and social scientists needed to generate those public goods that only the government is well placed to offer."


The NSW Government has already made many of these changes. See this interview with the Hon. Victor Dominello >
