Responsibility for Queensland's formerly stand-alone Technology Transformation Program has been rolled into the government's technology service provider CITEC.
The program, which aimed to save $135 million through the
sharing and consolidation of services, datacentres and core network
infrastructure across the government, as well as the
rationalisation of applications, stopped being an individual entity
and became part of CITEC on 31 August 2009.
The program had progressed to the implementation stage according
to the state's ICT Minister Robert Schwarten.
"CITEC has been heavily involved in the program to date and it
is appropriate they lead the implementation phase to maximise the
benefit of CITEC's existing capabilities in datacentre, networks
and infrastructure management," he said in a statement.
Sharon Valuch, who had previously been director of the project,
has accepted another position within the Department of Public
Works, although when her job was
advertised last year, it had said
she would be needed until 2011. Tony Skippington, the managing director
of CITEC, has taken over the helm.
