Those in the IT industry are urged to provide information about the barriers they face when dealing with the federal government.

Government is welcoming feedback on the challenges of procurement processes and broader ICT issues through the new email service confidentialprocurement@dta.gov.au, hosted by the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA).

The DTA has taken a strong focus on engaging with businesses, as well as with government agencies and departments.

“We have only been successful because we have done this work in partnership,” said Assistant Minister for Digital Transformation Angus Taylor.

“We are constantly engaging across government and looking for solutions that will deliver benefits more quickly and effectively. I think we have made it clear how important the partnership with industry is for us. I mean it when I say we have to be porous.”

Taylor also said he would “aggressively seek solutions” for problems faced by businesses.

“I think if the industry uses this service well, it can be incredibly powerful.”
