Our progress: 2016 to 2017
Over the past 2 years we’ve been working on transforming digital government, guided by the Government ICT Strategy. Here are some measures of our progress.
October 2016 to March 2017
We moved more government transactions online:
- in October 2016, 58% of common transactions were completed online
- we’re on track to have 70% of them online by the end of 2017.
We released the first integrated life event service, SmartStart, in December 2016.
We launched the GovTech talent graduate programme — an internship for graduates to work in digital roles across government — and have 15 graduates interning at participating agencies.
We’re on track to launch the ICT marketplace, a catalogue of services that are easy for agencies to buy and use, at the end of 2017.
Our progress in detail
These documents give detail of our initiatives and progress, and an overview of how our system is changing.
April to September 2016
We increased shared information technology (IT) across government:
- 86% of mandated agencies were using 1 or more all-of-government services
- 50 agencies signed up to use Telecommunications as a Service
- the government became a single customer when negotiating IT contracts — making it easy and efficient for suppliers to do business with us.
We started developing the ICT marketplace — a catalogue of services that are easy for agencies to buy and use:
- 13 agencies co-designed the marketplace prototype
- we talked with Treasury about funding approaches.
We planned or developed multi-agency services based on life events:
- SmartStart, to do with having a baby, was on track for release 1
- we developed a business case for Being a Victim of Crime.
