About the Government and Stakeholder Relations Sub-Committee

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 DSPANZ to expand and deepend our relationships with key government departments and individuals.

The objectives of this group include:

  • Identifying, maintaining and establishing government relationships to increase awareness about DSPANZ
  • Representing DSPANZ members at government forums, round tables and meetings
  • Assisting in the digital enablement of government services
  • Identifying opportunities to influence government policy for the digital economy
