Early Marketplace adoption pays off

Local councils are starting to take advantage of the speed and ease of procurement that the Digital Marketplace brings.

The City of Casey in Victoria published its first brief just eight days after our Beta release — an individual specialist opportunity for a developer experienced in Gravity forms.

In this interview, the Manager of Digital for City of Casey, Chris O’Connor, explains how happy he was to find the experience simple, clear and fast — even in its earliest Beta stage.

The Digital Marketplace has been created so buyers from all levels of government can access digital expertise quickly and easily.

Currently there are 304 registered government buyers from 92 different agencies, including the Australian Tax Office, the ABC and the Department of Defence, Science and Technology (DST Group), to name just a few.
