The NSW Government is looking for candidates to join its ICT Advisory Panel and procurement Industry Advisory Group.
There are five vacancies on the ICT Advisory Panel, including the position of Chair. lt will also refresh all seven positions, including Chair, on the procurement Industry Advisory Group.
“The ICT Advisory Panel has provided government with invaluable advice from an industry perspective on matters as diverse as cloud services, open data, information management, ICT procurement, social media, and new ICT sourcing models,” Minister for Finance and Services, Andrew Constance, said.
“The NSW Government is looking for ICT experts with the right experience, knowledge, skills and commitment to position NSW as a leader in the use of ICT to improve service delivery.”
Constance highlighted some of the government’s 2013-2014 priorities were based on technical standards and working more closely with industry and future directions for ICT hardware and software.
The procurement Industry Advisory Group is part of the overarching governance structure bridging the relationship between government and its suppliers.
“The Group provides a private sector perspective on innovative approaches to government procurement. It has accomplished a great deal, particularly on a framework for government agencies to engage with the market in an innovative and transparent way,” Constance said.
“I encourage individuals from the industry with the right experience, knowledge, skills to apply for a position on either the ICT Advisory Panel or procurement Industry Advisory Group.”
Membership lasts for 12 months and there will be opportunities to participate in working groups.
The closing date for expressions of interest for both the ICT Advisory Panel and procurement Industry Advisory Group is December 20.
