Increasing Efficiency and Citizen Satisfaction Through ICT and Digital Transformation

Local Government Transformation Series 2018

Adelaide – 22nd May 2018








Local councils in Australia are facing a challenging time. Whilst good progress has been made in delivering efficiency savings, the need to transform has never been more pressing. Rate capping, financial constraints, advancing technology and growing citizen expectations are just some of the key challenges local government areas (LGAs) are facing.

The Local Government Transformation Series will bring together local government senior executives focused on ICT and digital transformation, and technology providers, to network and discuss how to make the most of these challenges. The series will head to 6 cities across Australia and New Zealand to benchmark the key challenges faced by LGAs in each state, and develop a comprehensive report on the findings. The report will be created using a combination of interviews and surveys, as well as expert opinions, and released later in the year.
