Labor’s Shadow Minister for Industry and Innovation, Ed Husic, says that no one should be surprised if elected,an Albanese government conducts a review into the effectiveness of the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA). Elaborating on this, he said, "that’s not a policy, it’s a statement of the bleeding obvious”.

Husic was asked for his views on the DTA during a presentation to the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) on how Labor’s recently announced ‘Buy Australia’ policy will impact ICT procurement.
