     3   Government technology reform agenda

Mr Wallace, pursuant to notice, moved—That this House:

(1)        congratulates the Government for pursing an extensive technology reform agenda that will change the way Australians interact with Government services for the better;

(2)        recognises the:

(a)        actions the Government is taking to renew Centrelink’s aging information technology system through the Welfare Payment Infrastructure Transformation program, which will improve the user experience for the many Australians who access these services each week, and ensure the long term sustainability of our welfare system;

(b)        actions the Government is taking to upgrade and modernise the health and aged care payment system, and improve the services offered by Medicare to all Australians; and

(c)        investment the Government is making in digital services such as myGov, to further improve this service which is now used by more than ten million Australians; and

(3)        congratulates the Government on pursuing a courageous reform agenda which is sorely needed to correct six successive years of under-investment by Labor.

Debate ensued.

Debate adjourned, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for the next sitting.
