Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

The Australian Government is seeking applications for the Digital Transformation Advisory Board, offering an exciting opportunity to contribute to the Government’s digital transformation agenda.

The Government welcomes the significant interest in the Board to date, and invites further senior representatives from small business (including start‐ups), large business, academia, and relevant industry associations to apply.

The newly established Digital Transformation Agency is responsible for delivering the Government’s ambitious digital transformation agenda—making government services simple, clear and fast. In assessing potential Advisory Board members, the Government will consider:

  • experience in digital transformation and/or data initiatives, including policy and/or implementation
  • experience in managing change and disruption, including organisational and/or technological change
  • experience in engaging with stakeholders and/or government.

It is anticipated that the Board will draw on diverse expertise from a range of industries and sectors. Meeting biannually, the Advisory Board will provide advice on the digital transformation of Government. It will report to Angus Taylor, Assistant Minister for Digital Transformation and will be chaired by Dr Martin Parkinson, Secretary of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

Submissions should outline relevant experience and expertise, be no more than one page in length and be submitted to by 9 December 2016. The Department will contact successful applicants in December 2016.

Remuneration will not be provided.
