The purpose of the Standard is to provide the design thinking for anyone who designs or provides government services.
Find out why and how we are developing the Standard, the way it’s intended to be used, and how you can help improve it.
The principles are the core of the standard and set out the 12 high-level purpose statements, and objectives of the standard. They are fixed and formally signed-off pending any further review.
The Digital Service Design Standard (the Standard) was published in mid-2018. The New Zealand Government made a commitment under the Open Government Partnership to publish a preferred assessment model for the Standard.
