Will the VDAS be mandatory for Victorian state government departments? The VDAS is not mandatory for VIC state government departments and agencies. However, it should be noted that DE is the future direction for the AECO industry and DE will soon permeate every aspect of this industry. The VDAS approach will provide detailed information to Victorian Government asset stakeholders about how to implement DE processes to improve digital asset and information creation, management practices, capability and maturity across Victoria. The following departments and agencies are in the VDAS scope: Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions Department of Justice and Community Safety Department of Transport Department of Treasury and Finance Infrastructure Victoria Land Use Victoria Major Transport Infrastructure Authority Melbourne Water Office of Victoria Government Architect Has there been consultation with industry on their ability to deliver a VDAS approach? There have been numerous meetings with industry representatives on how to best structure the VDAS to benefit all stakeholders and enhance understanding of implementation processes. As such, a Competency Framework will be developed to provide asset stakeholders across the Victorian Government with detailed guidance on skills, qualities, experience and roles required to deliver the VDAS across the State.
