This report analyses the role played by Government Agencies as market participants in the creative digital content industries. In general, it aims to contribute to the following outcomes:
• Identify the processes through which Government Agencies participate in digital content and applications markets (e.g. tendering, partnerships and so on);
• Identify weaknesses and inefficiencies as well as strengths in these processes; and
• Development of strategies through which Government Agencies can most effectively leverage current and future involvement in these markets to assist in the development of the creative digital content industries.
To achieve these outcomes, we have conducted a total of six case studies to examine how Government Agencies have engaged with industry suppliers as a means to stimulate and encourage development within the digital content and applications market.
