About the QGEA

If you're seeking information about the QGEA reference group, see QGEA Reference Group.

What is the QGEA?

The Queensland Government Enterprise Architecture (QGEA) is the collection of digital and ICT strategies, policies and associated publications that guides agency digital and ICT investments to improve the compatibility and cost-effectiveness of these investments. This collection pulls together all Queensland Government publications relating to digital and ICT strategies, related policies and associated enterprise architecture documents.

The QGEA is underpinned by a set of foundation principles that support the development and implementation of the QGEA. These principles describe the values, beliefs and behaviours for the management of information and for investment decision-making for ICT across government - and are meant to be enduring and not require frequent change.

How does it help?

In making investment decisions and managing technologies, this repository of publications assists agencies in

  • optimising their digital investments
  • managing their information holdings, technologies and initiatives
  • using preferred processes, solutions and configurations

What's in it?

First, the QGEA framework formalises the types of publications within the QGEA, including which documents define mandatory rules, and which ones provide supporting recommendations. By being aware of publications within the QGEA, it is expected that policies may need to be interpreted locally to suit individual agency needs.

Second, it documents the governance processes for developing, managing, approving and complying with strategy, policy and related publications.

Third, it provides classification frameworks on business services, business processes, information holdings, applications and technologies.

For a comprehensive description of the QGEA, please have a look at the QGEA Framework.
