Digital Marketplace off to a strong start

Friday, October 21, 2016

A steady stream of buyers and sellers of digital services have joined the government’s Digital Marketplace since it was launched last month.

Early adopters of the platform include the Department of Health, the Bureau of Meteorology, the ATO, the ABC, and a local council in Victoria who are using the Marketplace to find digital specialists as well as teams to provide larger outcomes such as new websites.

Sellers, particularly small operators with few contacts in government or industry, are also finding the new platform to be beneficial to their business growth.

The Digital Marketplace is designed to transform digital and technology procurement in government, making it simpler for government and businesses to work together. It is also designed to make it easier for start-ups and SMEs to compete for the government’s $5 billion-a-year ICT spend. There is currently more than $15 million worth of business already listed.
