Our Local Government Information Communications Technology (LGICT) Group is an independently-funded group of local government information technology (IT) practitioners who work together to improve outcomes for Victorian councils.
As the voice of IT for local government, the LGICT works with state and federal government representatives to maximise opportunities for successful ICT project funding and delivery across all council business areas.
The LGICT work closely with MAV Procurement to co-ordinate sector-wide contracts for the supply of system software, hardware, policy development and telecommunications solutions.
The annual MAV Technology Annual Conference is held every August. It is a two-day event that attracts hundreds of local government senior executives, IT coordinators and vendors. Attendees share their ICT challenges, knowledge, products and experience.
The LGICT also hosts forums and workshops in regional and metropolitan locations throughout the year.
About the group
The group is made up of IT managers and chief information officers representing 75 Victorian councils. These are the people directly responsible for implementing practical technology solutions within Victoria’s local government sector.
By sharing information, expertise and experiences, LGICT members are able to provide better, more cost-effective and innovative IT services for their council colleagues and their local communities.
A private Yammer network facilitates the sharing of information and ideas about effective ICT delivery in local government. Request an invitation to join the MAV Technology Yammer network.
