  • PUBLICATIONS

Dr Tim Turner has been involved in the IT industry for over 20 years, with the focus on e-commerce, and particularly e-government, for over 15 years. He has concentrated his attention on assisting governments at all levels to understand how information technology can be used to enhance effectiveness and efficiency. He has played significant roles in several of Australia’s leading e-government projects and regularly consults to peak government and industry bodies in the e-government arena. Tim has also delivered significant projects in the private sector in information technology generally and electornic commerce specifically.

Tim is the Deputy Head of School for Teaching in the School of Engineering and IT at the Australian Defence Force Academy. As a senior lecturer, he is teaching Australia’s future military leaders to understand and exploit information technology. His PhD developed a theory of e-government service design grounded in his experience and that of Australian governments at the Federal, State and Local levels.
