Senators will be aware of the recent announcement of the establishment of the Digital Transformation Office in government. The myGov online entry point is absolutely vital to delivering our e-government and digital transformation technology. It was an election commitment of ours to shift major services and interactions with individuals online, and we are committed to doing that by 2017 so that all major transactions with government can be conducted, end to end, digitally. We are going to keep that promise, and we are going to be able to meet that commitment. What the Digital Transformation Office will do is to leverage myGov to transform the way that services are delivered, not just to individuals but to business as well. That will be transformational for the way that business is able to engage with government. Staff from my department are embedded within the interim DTO and will continue to work very closely with them in the development of that project. (Time expired)
