2006-07 Federal Government ICT contracts data produced by Intermedium shows that while there are changes from year-to-year in ICT spending amongst individual agencies, their relative rankings have not changed significantly in recent years.
The following table shows the ranking of agencies according to their ICT spending in the 2006-07 financial year. This is then compared with the ranking of each agency according to their ICT procurement during the last 3 years, from 2004-05 to 2006-07.
It should be noted that this table records the financial year in which the contract was reported, not the level of expenditure by year.
ATO's 3-year ranking (#3) that was boosted by its large development project with Accenture, has dropped to #5, while DIAC with a 3-ranking of #4 was elevated to #2 in the current financial year on the back of its Programs for People project with IBM.
Apart from the large Tier 1 agencies, the big mover in the current financial year was Medicare Australia. Agencies that rank in the Top 20 on the 3-year average, but did not contract the same level of ICT in 2006-07 (and therefore don't appear in this table), include IP Australia, ABS, and DCITA.
