DTA sponsors the Government & Public Sector Solutions category for the AIIA iAwards

The DTA’s mission is to drive and secure the Australian Government’s investment in our country’s digital future. To do this, we need to find opportunities to support today’s innovators as they develop solutions to benefit all Australians.


That is why we’re excited to announce our sponsorship of the Government & Public Sector Solutions category for the iAwards for the next three years.

Chris Fechner, the Chief Executive Officer of the DTA, supports the important work the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) does to foster and recognise innovators across Australia.

“The DTA are very pleased to be continuing our partnership with the iAwards to recognise exemplars in the digital space,” Mr Fechner says. “That is why I would encourage anyone working on tech solutions - that make a positive impact at a local, national, or global scale - to enter the iAwards.

“Be recognised for the good that you are doing.”

Entries for the 2024 iAwards are free and now open. Entries close at 5pm, Tuesday 2 April 2024. For more information, visit iAwards 24.
