This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) and the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) exists to facilitate practical ways for the DTA and the AIIA to engage to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.
The DTA has been created to lead the Australian Government in moving more government services to digital channels, improve the digital experience of the public and ensure a better return on the government’s ICT spend.
The AIIA is Australia’s peak representative body and advocacy group for those in the digital ecosystem, pursuing activities to stimulate and grow the digital ecosystem and to create a favourable business environment for members, and to contribute to Australia’s economic prosperity.
Both participants are interested in supporting each other’s goals to:
• provide better digital public services
• enable a network for collaboration and inspiration, and
• promote economic growth through open markets and by stimulating startups and small to medium enterprises to engage in government procurement activities.
The two parties will work cooperatively to exchange information, experiences and expertise to achieve better outcomes for individuals and businesses using government online services.
