With the announcement of the full Albanese Ministry, and related Machinery of Government (MoG) changes, Intermedium offers a sweep over the ICT, digital, and cyber security related portfolio appointments, the projects they are inheriting (including recent Budget funding), and pledges made during the election.
Responsibility for de-regulation, data policy, and the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) will return to the Department of Finance. Katy Gallagher replaces Stuart Robert at the centre of all government ICT, digital, and cyber security spending, and will likely become chair of the national Digital and Data Ministers Meeting.
There are some changes to how the incoming Labor Government has assigned portfolio structures and ministerial titles, and it is not yet clear exactly what the reporting lines and supporting roles will be in some areas. It appears – at least initially – that the five person leadership group sworn in after the election will have significant cross-portfolio oversight.
