Connecting government at every level

We help government agencies become better connected to the community by providing services that collate and disseminate information.

Creating online services for citizens

Digital technology and cloud computing means government agencies have an unprecedented opportunity to create citizen-based online services.

Our Connected Government vision allows agencies at every level of government -federal, state and local – to be more responsive in rising to the challenges of changing social and demographic dynamics.

To do that, Connected Government considers factors such as how inclusive, collaborative, innovative and productive an agency is, and how our solutions can help improve those outcomes.

Integrated national approach

Our integrated approach based on compatible platforms helps to facilitate the increasing need to share services, data or communications within and between governments.

We connect agencies and empower staff to deliver on government goals and policies

The Australian federal government is tasked with delivering more open and collaborative modes of government.

State governments share high aims - equitable healthcare, minimise the impacts of natural disasters, schools that prepare a smart workforce, community services that reach people as needed.

Meanwhile local governments are at the frontline meeting the needs of the local community.

We’re working to help safely incorporate the perspectives of Australians in every level of decision-making.

Our value proposition includes a skilled, experienced workforce, a track record for designing innovative ICT solutions designed specifically for government, and secure, far-reaching networks capable of delivering modern services to more people in more places.
