Overview and Responsibilities

The DTA has a requirement for a number of enterprise/business architects to progress the development of a whole of government architecture and reuse agendas.

The Australian Government is progressing whole of government architecture to ‘drive design and investment decisions as whole of government’. The vision is to take us from siloed capabilities to a landscape of connected platforms and services. The initiative was announced by Minister Robert 29 November 2019 and led by the Digital Transformation Agency. The focus of the initiative is on developing architecture frameworks, tools, and capabilities through a series of cross-agency pilots that maximise platforms and services re-use, design integration, and assurance.

One of the core outcomes will be a higher level of reuse across the commonwealth, delivering benefits such as speed to operations and consistency in user experience. An example of one such pilot is the Permissions Capability, being led by the Department of Home Affairs with the support of the DTA.
