Digital transformation is driving some of the biggest changes we have experienced in our society 

We believe governments can capitalise on the opportunities digital transformation presents. Code for Australia and the Victorian Government’s Public Sector Innovation Fund are working together with the public to find new solutions to old problems.

The Code for Victoria Innovation Challenge has paired nine talented technologists with three state government agencies. Special Minister of State Gavin Jennings chose the following three projects to go ahead:

  • Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Parks Victoria: Improving the collection and availability of biodiversity data.
  • Department of Treasury and Finance: Building a transparent and accessible system to better collect, analyse and display Victorian government infrastructure tender and contract activities.
  • Victoria Legal Aid: Streamlining referral services to connect Victorians to the legal support they need.

Fellowship began 1st August.

Fellows serve as agents for change, helping shape our state. The Fellowship program pairs teams of technologists, designers and community organisers with top civil-servants and change-makers in the government departments to tackle some of our state's biggest challenges.


What is a government innovator?


Do you have a problem or innovation opportunity in your area? Projects can be solely focused on supporting agencies, delivering on state priorities, and/or delivering technology that has a cross-agency impact on the state government.
