Premier Announces Major ICT Outsourcing

16 February 2017

Today the Premier announced that the future of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in the Public Service is to be outsourced.

This move opens the door for outsourcing right across the Public Service and so it is critical that we challenge it every step of the way.

ICT Members have already registered their concerns with the Premier and are seeking to meet with him to talk about the real impacts of outsourcing ICT.

The key concerns of members include data security, cost, corporate knowledge and real time response. ICT in the Government at times struggles to meet demand – reducing access will only increase this problem not resolve it.
