State-owned power generator Stanwell Corporation has put itself in the market for a chief information officer after letting the position lapse.
The advertisement for the role marketed it as a newly created position to handle recent investments in ICT infrastructure, capability and resources. "Now is the time to deliver," it says. It expected the new CIO to drive ICT strategy for the company.
The company did have a CIO position previously, but in 2008 after former CIO Jerry Sadlowski left, an internal business decision saw the CIO role and responsibilities absorbed into the IT team, according to a spokesperson for the company. Now, however, the position is being recreated "to meet business needs".
The new CIO will report to the general manager of business services Brad Neven.
Earlier this year, the company, which provides over 30 per cent of Queensland's electricity, requested proposals from vendors to build two new Tier 3 datacentres and to provide ICT managed support services. According to the Queensland Government tender site, the contracts have been closed, but not awarded.
