Chapter 7: Effective and Efficient use of Information and Communication Technologies by the Australian Government

The Department of Finance and Administration (Finance) contributes to effective and efficient use of information and communication technology (ICT) by the Australian Government by providing assistance, guidance and advice to departments and agencies applying ICT to government operations. Finance's activities in support of this outcome include developing whole-of-government ICT management policies to inform the design and implementation of government programmes and the delivery of government services. In addition, Finance works with government and other bodies at the local, state, national and international level to help develop and maintain Australia's position as a world leader in e-government. The Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) is the main contributor to Outcome 4.
