Spotlight on State Government Spotlight on State Government

The iTnews Benchmark Awards seek to celebrate excellence in technology leadership across Australian business and government.

And this year the entries in the newly-broken-out category of State Government Technology have proven difficult to distinguish: there’s a lot of great work going on out there. So while we can say that the winners will be revealed at the Benchmark Awards ceremony in KPMG’s new Sydney office in on March 7th, we can’t quite say who the finalists are at this stage!

We can say that Health agencies around the nation have submitted many impressive projects. Transport agencies have also been busy. And the tech required to get water into the taps? Impressive! We can’t say more right now.

But while you wait, consider these State Government Projects that caught the judges’ eyes across 2018:
