Montreal, May 14, 2019 – The Quebec Technology Association (AQT) presented this morning the recommendations of its memoir to the parliamentary committee on Bill 14, the Act to promote the digital transformation of public administration. If adopted, this law will facilitate the implementation of projects in designated information resources of governmental interest by the Conseil du trésor.
« From the point of view of the Government of Québec’s goal of a digital transformation to improve its efficiency and services to citizens, allowing the sharing of data between departments and agencies becomes a central element of this transformation “, says Nicole Martel, President and CEO of AQT. The AQT is thus in favor of the adoption of this bill, insofar as it will accelerate the digital transformation of the State. »
However, the AQT’s reflection on Bill 14 brought to light some questions and issues. For a number of years now, the AQT has been involved in the ministerial reflection surrounding the digital transformation of public administration and it is in continuity with this approach that it presented its reflections this morning in parliamentary committee :
Finally, we believe that this reflection must be done with all the stakeholders that can contribute. As private companies that offer technology solutions and services are key partners and will be involved in projects that emerge from the Digital Agenda, AQT feels it is important to participate in this process.
