In 2006 Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) CIO David Spaziani was handed the task of assembling the Department’s disparate ICT silos into a coherent whole.

New Zealand’s Department of Internal Affairs has been dubbed the “mother of all departments”. It reports to six ministers, administers more than 90 Acts and Regulations, and employs 1400 staff in 21 offices here and overseas.
