About us

The Department of Housing and Public Works is undergoing a process to realign whole of government customer and digital functions. These webpages will be updated shortly to reflect the new arrangements.

The Queensland Government invests around $1.5 billion a year in information and communication technology (ICT).

The Queensland Government Chief Information Office (QGCIO) is responsible for ensuring the government’s ICT investments:

  • support policy outcomes
  • are focussed on service delivery to the community
  • represent good value for money
  • are reliable.

We provide advice to Queensland Government agencies and executive government on issues such as:

  • setting ICT strategy, policies and standards
  • adopting better practice for ICT investment management
  • identifying and managing risks, including ‘over the horizon’ risks
  • developing proposals for major whole-of-government investments
  • identifying and managing strategic workforce capability issues
  • improving contract outcomes
  • facilitating strategic relationships with industry partners.

The Queensland Government Chief Information Officer is part of the Department of Housing and Public Works.
