MAV Technology

MAV Technology was established by the Municipal Association of Victoria in 2004. It is an independently funded group of local government IT, digital and business transformation practitioners, who are committed to demonstrating leadership to improve council and community services. 77 of Victoria's 79 councils are current members of MAV Technology.

MAV Technology provides:

  • communication channels such as our Yammer network for members to share ideas, resources and experiences
  • collaborative procurement opportunities to reduce costs and increase efficiency
  • conference and forum events to encourage discussion and innovation
  • funding for projects of strategic value to the sector which can be shared on Council Commons for digital transformation
  • awards to encourage and recognise innovation in ICT
  • advocacy for major transformative initiatives
  • a platform to collaborate with other levels of government and local government associations.

The Committee makes decisions regarding MAV Technology's strategic direction; project funding and support; event programming; vendor sponsorships and partnerships; engagement with State and Federal government; and advocacy for innovative and transformative ICT initiatives.
