The Public Sector ICT Forum was established in early 2016. The board is made up of government IT officers (GITOs) and chief information officers (CIOs) from within the public sector. It was established 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.

The forum provides online and event-based thought-leadership and knowledge-sharing platforms for the local community of ICT decision-makers. The forum gives CIOs the opportunity to listen to and engage with leading local and international speakers to provoke dialogue, spark ideas and generate concepts that can be taken back to their areas of work. This is an informal community that encourages collaboration and thought in the name of improved service delivery.
