Intra-agency sharing wins at government digital awards


New awards scheme to encourage agencies to enhance their digital information management skills and inspire other agencies announces its first winners.

The electronic court file, ImmiAccount self-service visa applications, and the range of federal Human Services’ online channels are among Commonwealth government projects honoured at the inaugural Digital Excellence Awards, announced on Monday.

The digital awards are a new venture from the National Archives of Australia to recognise world-class digital achievements from public service trend-setters.
