Public ICT Forum 2018

If you are a C-level IT professional in the public sector, then this is your opportunity to engage with like-minded individuals who share the same challenges and are seeking similar solutions. Now is the time to collaborate!

We have the perfect space for you to engage – the Public Sector ICT Forum, which was established in early 2016. The board comprises government IT officers (GITOs), chief information officers (CIOs) and chief technology officers (CTOs) from within the public sector. The purpose is to provide a focused platform and opportunity for public sector ICT decision-makers to come together to engage and discuss topics that are key to the local public sector.

Over the past 24 months, this forum has provided valuable thought-leadership and knowledge-sharing events on a number of relevant topics held exclusively for the local community of ICT decision-makers in the public sector. These events have taken place at the Four Seasons Hotel, Westcliff, and an inaugural event in Limpopo at The Fusion Hotel.

Topics covered:

  • Digitalisation in the public sector (September 2016)
  • Collaboration to drive service delivery throughout the public sector (May 2017)
  • Integrated risk management in the public sector space (September 2017)
  • The vital role of broadband in service delivery in Limpopo and the evolving role of the GITO (May 2018)
  • The role of the 'new' CIO dissected (May 2018)

In May 2018, hear new insights and lessons learnt from leading locals, as well as engaging with a broad spectrum of your peers and colleagues within the public sector ICT community.

In September 2018, you will benefit from further insights and lessons learned from leading GITOs, as well as engaging with a broad spectrum of your peers and colleagues within the public sector ICT community. Details pertaining to the upcoming event/s in September will be posted on this site in due course. Please feel free to send us your ideas for discussion topics; how we could improve on the event structure; and any other ideas you may have. Feel free to use the chat function or e-mail

The Public Sector ICT Forum provides a space where dialogue and debate is welcomed, no matter how contentious or controversial. Ideas and concepts generated at the biannual events (May and September), and during the quarterly board meetings, are taken back to companies' areas of work and developed further.

You can become part of this informal community, which encourages collaboration and thought-leadership in the name of improved service delivery, by becoming a member.

Looking forward to welcoming you as a fully fledged member of the Public Sector ICT Forum.

Let's engage!
