The Australian Taxation Office collaborates with ACEMS through research secondments. These provide the opportunity for ATO staff to develop technical and research skills as well as domain specific knowledge in current data analytics and big data methodologies and approaches.
The Australian Taxation Office has been a valued ACEMS IAM since 2016. Over this time, the ATO has leveraged secondments with ACEMS for capacity building and to explore opportunities, including with big data analytics and machine learning. According to ATO secondees to ACEMS, the benefits have included: the ability to tap into expertise at and beyond the ACEMS QUT host node; having a “highly valuable resource for rapidly investigating and selecting techniques that can meet the ATO’s needs”, and gaining a “deeper understanding of the technical and applied aspects of pertinent statistical methods”. The Centre also benefits from such co-locations, enabling closer collaboration and knowledge exchange.
In 2019, the ATO continued to value being engaged in ACEMS networking events, talks, seminars and other activities. We look forward to continuing our collaboration in 2020.Back to Industry Affliate Members
