Membership Value for
Australian ICT Organisations
August 2013
ICT: A Vital Industry Sector
• ICT contributes nearly 8% of Australia’s GDP;
generates in excess of $91b of revenue and
drives a digital economy valued at some $100b
(Australian ICT Statistical Compendium, ACS, 2012, p11)
• ICT job numbers are expected to double from
175,000 in 1999 to 350,000 in 2015 but over
the last decade ICT enrolments in training and
education have fallen nationally by 55 (Department of
Business and Innovation, Victoria, ICT snapshot – The State of ICT skills in Victoria, January 2012)
• The Australia tech start-up sector has the
potential to contribute 4% of GDP, $109bn and
540,000 jobs to the economy by 2033 (AGIMO Australia’s
use and satisfaction with e-government services 2011)

SmartICT Election Platform
Our SmartICT Platform envisions a society of connected and
empowered citizens using SmartICT to create a vibrant and
globally competitive economy. We call for specific actions in six
key areas:
1. Shifting the focus to driving take up and use of our national broadband
infrastructure, with a particular focus on Government use of SmartICT;
2. Stimulating growth and innovation by ICT start-ups and small business;
3. Motivating small and medium sized enterprises to improve their
productivity by ‘getting online' and becoming digitally capable;
4. Addressing the ICT skills shortage;
5. Growing our ICT capability through improved research and development
(R&D) capability and capacity and forging better links between research
and industry; and
6. Acknowledging the ‘value’ of the digital economy by tracking and
measuring its performance.
