The ASU has been advised by TasWater that they have made a Preliminary Decision to form a Digital Transformation division.

It is proposed to realign some areas and create a new Digital Transformation division which will result in changes to some reporting arrangements across TasWater.

If this new division is created the following departments, teams and individuals would be moved into it:

  • Business Systems (from Finance & Commercial Services)
  • Innovation team (from Business Performance, F&CS)
  • Productivity team (from Business Performance, F&CS)
  • Senior Engineer SCADA Strategy (from Asset Strategy, APP&D)

Additionally, should the proposed changes be accepted, a General Manager position would be created to head up the new division and join the Executive team.

TasWater has also advised there may be some subsequent review of structure within the teams.

We believe that many ASU members may be impacted by this preliminary decision, in particular, members in IT.

The ASU encourages you to provide your feedback on the proposed changes to TasWater as requested. This feedback should be provided to Stacey Woods at

Further, if you are impacted by this proposed realignment and have concerns or any queries, please contact ASU Organiser Karen Tantari on 0472 512 484 or via
