Queensland, Australia’s third most popular state, has appointed a new standalone Queensland Government Chief Information Officer (QGCIO)—a first for the state—following its July announcement to create this role.

Simon Finn, Minister for Information and Communication Technology announced on 1 December 2011 that Professor Peter Grant will begin his QGCIO role on the day itself.

“I’m very pleased that Peter will take on this role, which is the first of its kind in the nation,” Mr Finn said. “Peter brings over 40 years of experience to this position—half of which is in the public sector.”

“The new QCGIO role will provide government with the leadership, management and advice to ensure that whole-of-Government ICT investment is maximised,” said Finn. “This new role will have a mandate to make the tough calls on Queensland’s ICT policy development and have enough clout to drive change, innovation and develop strong ICT infrastructure.”

In this role, Grant will be responsible for whole-of-Government ICT direction including National Broadband Network master planning, effective working relationships with the ICT industry, and building ICT capacity development across the public sector.

As QGCIO, Grant would give advice on the digital economy and support the Director-General of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet and provide regular reports to Cabinet on implementation of the new shared services model and whole-of-Government ICT performance.

Finn said that Grant has previously held senior executive roles across a range of State Government portfolios, including the Department of Public Works, Queensland Health and the Department of Transport and Main Roads (Queensland Transport at the time).
