DTA drops four, adds two.
The status of two ATO projects previously captured by the watchlist – the SuperStream superannuation overhaul and single touch payroll program – were downgraded to ‘monitor’ in March and April this year.
The DTA has been keeping tabs on high-risk projects since it was tasked with identifying all government IT projects valued at more than $10 million in early 2017.
It looked to categorise projects as part of its digital investment review by confidence of delivery, with the most high-risk ones assigned an ‘engage’ classification.
Such a classification could see the DTA conduct health checks, ask for remediation or mitigation plans, or request reviews.
Less risky projects were labelled as either ‘monitor’ or ‘observe’.
The DTA revealed that 17 – or just under a quarter of all federal government IT projects captured by the watchlist – fell under the ‘engage’ category last November.
