Significant awards recognising Australian Government excellence in digital information management are open for nominations.
The National Archives of Australia 2018 Awards for Digital Excellence will celebrate Commonwealth agencies at the forefront of digital transformation.
National Archives Director-General David Fricker encouraged agencies to highlight their achievements in digital information management by nominating for the annual awards.
'Australians are early adopters of technology and expect information to be available to them online and in real time,' Mr Fricker said.
'These awards celebrate agencies that are leading the way with digital transformation initiatives aimed at increasing public access to information online, including records of government policies and decisions.
'By awarding top government innovators, the Archives commends best practice digital management of our valuable information.'
Award winners will be selected from case studies that showcase significant progress towards Digital Continuity 2020, a whole-of-government approach to digital information governance.
Last year's winners delivered user-centric approaches for digital documents management, and impressive interoperability between stakeholders.
Submissions close 28 February 2018, with winners announced at the launch of Information Awareness Month on 1 May 2018.
