The existing panel is chaired by John Baird, Head of Production, Australia New Zealand at Deutsche Bank.

“ICT allows the NSW Government to provide better services to the community and drives efficiencies in the way we do business,” Constance said in a statement. “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.”
“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. Our reform agenda is on track and we have accomplished a great deal in the past year. I appreciate the support offered by current panel members in helping to make our vision for ICT reform a reality.”
“Technical standards and working more closely with industry and future directions for ICT hardware and software are just some of the government’s priorities for 2013-14. We will be looking for panel input to these areas of work.”
Constance said the NSW Government was also calling for industry experts to provide expert advice as part of the procurement Industry Advisory Group.
“The procurement Industry Advisory Group is part of the overarching governance structure that is reshaping the relationship between government and suppliers to Government,” Constance said. “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.”
“The Group has advised on how to attract small and medium enterprises across NSW to consider opportunities for NSW Government work. All seven positions, including Chair, on the procurement Industry Advisory Group will be refreshed. 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.”
