Digital developments from Canberra 66

Australiia gets a data and digital government strategy, the online services industry codes come into force, Services Australia blows $52 million but gets a new boss, the treasurer drops the mini-budget, and more.

Here’s what I’ve noticed since the previous edition on 8 December.

Please let me know if I’ve missed anything, or if there’s any specific items you’d like me to follow.

I’m posting this at 3.20pm AEDT on Friday. If anything drops later today I’ll add it here on Saturday morning.

Parliament is currently on summer break and is due to return on Tuesday 6 February 2024. I’ll do one more of these this year, next Friday 22 December, and then take a break until Friday 12 February 2024 — unless something dramatic happens.

If you’ve been finding this series of posts useful, please consider throwing a tip into the tip jar.
