Digital Sourcing Network

The digital sourcing network has been created to encourage greater communication, collaboration and knowledge-sharing among those in the Australian Public Service who are involved in ICT procurement and digital sourcing roles.

The network is a place to find solutions, learn from the experience of others and learn how best to engage with industry regarding digital sourcing.

By bringing people together, forming networks on relevant topics, and addressing pain points we can build stronger capability.

Network members also have an opportunity to participate in working groups to address significant gaps previously identified in digital sourcing capability.

Events and activities will be delivered according to member’s wants and needs. Get in touch to receive network updates.
