A Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) provides your organisation with the information needed to make decisions about investment in technology. A TNA should establish a clear link between your organisation’s strategic plan, proposed technology and the business outcomes required. The TNA should outline what your organisation does, what else needs to be done, and how newer technology will help your organisation achieve its goals. A staff member may undertake the TNA for your organisation or you may engage an external “expert” to provide information about the possibilities technology can offer based on the needs you identify.  

How to Create a Technology Needs Assessment and Planning Your Technology Initiatives are helpful online resources to guide you through the development of a TNA.  We encourage you to use these, along with other information you may source, to guide you through the development of a TNA.
