The Government’s ICT strategy will deliver better public services for less cost. Through reuse and sharing of our ICT assets, we will improve productivity and efficiency, reduce waste and the likelihood of project failure.
The strategy will improve and open up public service delivery by supporting online transactional services for citizens and businesses, and create channels for collaboration and policy debate.
To ensure that we continue to improve our ICT delivery, we will move away from very large programmes to a greater number of smaller and more agile projects. We will create a common ICT infrastructure built on a set of common and, where necessary, mandated open standards.
Through greater transparency and the publication of details on Government contracts we will reduce bureaucracy and encourage more small and medium sized enterprises to participate directly in the delivery of Government ICT
