The Information Technology Strategy for the Victorian Government, 2016 to 2020

The Information Technology Strategy for the Victorian Government, 2016 to 2020 supports the changes in focus required to enable public sector reform and sets out the direction for four priorities:

  1. reform in how government manages and makes transparent its information and data
  2. seizing opportunities from the digital revolution
  3. reforming government’s underlying technology
  4. lifting up the capability of government employees to implement ICT solutions that are innovative, contemporary and beneficial.

The government will focus on digital-first, citizen-centric delivery of government services and transactions. Personal productivity systems should have robust, industrial-strength back-end components, but allow employees to easily use contemporary tools. The strategy also emphasises a focus on the roles, responsibilities and training needs of its workforce in order to uplift ICT capability within the government.

This strategy positions information technology as supporting the design and delivery of good policy, good services and good outcomes for Victorians.
