Are you looking for an ICT provider to assist with your challenge?

The Industry Capability Network NT (ICN NT) are collaborating with the Department of Trade, Business and Innovation to link applicants with ICT service providers in the Northern Territory. If you have a digital challenge and are looking for a solution, ICN NT can assist by linking you with ICT providers through advertising your digital challenge on the ICN Gateway and allowing ICT providers to express and interest in the project. You will then be linked with all parties that express and interest. It is then up to the applicant to negotiate and select a supplier if applicable.

If you are interested in publishing your digital challenge on the ICN Gateway, please contact the ICN NT office on 08 8922 9422 or email

After you apply

Applicants may also be invited to give a presentation to the Department of Trade, Business and Innovation to support their application.

Please note, there is no obligation on the Department of Trade, Business and Innovation to request or hear a presentation.
