Wilson, who served a five-year stint with the DET, declined to renew his contract in July.

The DET's current acting chief information officer is Marie Romero. The new CIO will be responsible for overseeing the technology needs of over 96,000 staff.

Based in Sydney, a contract of up to 5 years will be negotiated.
