Gershon report to shake-up Federal Government ICT

Gershon report to shake-up Federal Government ICT

AIIA’s Grant pointed to competing agendas between Gershon’s review of the use and management of ICT and Tanner’s whole-of-government cost-cutting mandate.

“In private business, you invest when governance is weak, but here you have disinvestment yet a need to get improvements. We’re sceptical about what is driving this report – is it to reduce spending or improve IT?” he asked. “For example, the contractor cuts show government is not getting value out of contractors – to cut numbers is like the cart before the horse.

“Government needs to interact more with industry to get the best skills required for the best outcome.”
