We currently run a number of sub-committees to support DSPANZ's work in areas of interest for digital service providers and the
business software industry. Many of these sub-committees have a corresponding category or channel on DSPANZ's Forum or Slack for
member participation and conversations. Some sub-committees are open to DSPANZ members. More information on how each sub-committee, how they
work and how you can participate can be found below.
E-Delivery of Business - E-invoicing
Open to members and non-members
Government Digital Services
More information about this sub-committee will be made available soon.
Modernisation of Payroll
Open to member participation through Forum
Payroll continues to grow and be considered as critical infrastructure to the overall economy with recent initiatives, including Single Touch Payroll, being fundamental to the success of major government announcements. DSPANZ are uniquely positioned to assist in the design and implementation of payroll related initiatives in order to achieve successful outcomes for both the government, digital service providers and business.
Open to members through EOI
The drive towards a digital economy has led to a proliferation of digital capability and with that an exponential increase in cyber-crime and a focus on cyber security. Through our members, DSPANZ is well positioned to identify cyber security issues and help mitigate cyber risks across Australia and New Zealand. We can also influence the future direction and policies on cyber security to benefit our members and the wider business community.
Government and Stakeholder Relations
The Government and Stakeholder Relations sub-committee was established in May 2020 to bring together government relations representatives from DSPANZ members to coordinate approaches to government on behalf of the industry. The purpose of this sub-committee is to explore opportunities for ABSIA to expand and deepend our relationships with key government departments and individuals. This is a closed sub-committee and the members are refreshed annually.
