news Documents released under Freedom of Information laws have appeared to show that the minister overseeing the Federal Government’s peak IT decision-making agency is concerned about its ability to deliver on a whole of government technology strategy, with yet another review being commissioned into its performance.
In the Federal Government, centralised IT strategy is put together by the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO), a unit within the Department of Finance and Deregulation which is overseen by Special Minister of State Gary Gray (pictured, right). The group, which is led by whole of government chief information officer Ann Steward, works with departmental CIOs and secretaries to set central IT policy in areas such as procurement and standards.
However, AGIMO’s future has been under a cloud for the past 18 months following the delivery of a report in November 2010 produced by well-regarded IT consultant and former head of the government’s e-health agency, Dr Iain Reinecke. The document constituted a report card on how well the Government had implemented the recommendations of a wide-ranging report delivered in October 2008 into government IT service delivery, produced by British efficiency expert Sir Peter Gershon.
