Electronic Service Delivery: The Changing Relationship between Government & Citizens in the Immigration Context. Service Delivery Transformation: understanding the relationship when customers are not citizens, when operations are global, and when technology is both a policy lever and the mechanism for service delivery innovation.

This paper was presented at the 2010 Malta meeting of the Commonwealth Association for Public Administration (CAPAM) which had as its theme: ‘Building a Common Future: Global Challenges, Local Responses.’ October 2010, Malta. This was a case study of the digital client services transformation at the then Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). 2010 marked the commencement of a far-reaching transformation of the DIAC to a technologically sophisticated and globally integrated, risk-tiered electronic operation encompassing networks of government and non-government service delivery providers.
