Federal Government launches its digital transformation strategy

The Hon Michael Keenan MP, Minister for Human Services and Digital Transformation, has this week launched the Commonwealth’s digital transformation strategy during an address at the National Press Club in Canberra.

The Strategy provides a direction for the Government’s work on data and digital transformation, with the aim to have all government services available digitally in the next seven years.

The Minister said that the strategy sets out a bold vision for Australia to remain in the top 3 digital governments in the world by 2025.

“Digital transformation is happening across the private sector, and increasingly across governments,” he said.

“The strategy I am releasing today will take us forward for the next seven years — to make Australia one of the world’s best digital governments.”

The strategy sets out 3 priorities that focus on delivering integrated digital services, using data and increasing trust and transparency, and lifting the digital capability of government:

  • Government that’s easier to deal with 
  • Government that’s informed by you 
  • Government that’s fit for the digital age

The strategy is also accompanied by a roadmap of key projects and milestones being rolled out over the next two years.
