Tech 4 VIC
Tech 4 VIC Manifesto Launch
InterAct Melbourne is coordinating the production of a Technology Manifesto to be presented to all candidates from all parties in advance of the election on 24 November 2018.
Melbourne State Election Special
The Election on 24 November will determine the direction and priorities of the Victorian government until November 2022.
At the forefront of all party campaigns will be policy proposals on Health, Education, Transport, Environment, Triple Zero and Social Services. In a world where policy failure can cost lives or millions of $’s, technology must paramount in (evidence based) policy formulation, program execution, monitoring, reporting, testing and appropriately agile amendment.
Technology is essentially the fuel policy needs to build and deliver predictable and desired policy outcomes.…. so, in Victoria, why is technology a political and priority afterthought? Why will it be covered in 20 words in para 4 on page 26 in most manifesto or policy platforms?
