Digital.nsw preparing Digital Restart Fund

The NSW Government’s Digital.nsw is preparing to launch a new Digital Restart Fund that will act as a new model for funding whole-of-government digital service projects.

The new fund is based on the principles of transitioning to agile delivery methods for new digital solutions, while ensuring that investments deliver the most value for money possible.

Based on consultations, Digital.nsw drew up a short list of 18 high-priority investment opportunities based on the services that are needed across whole of government.

Examples include giving citizens the option to login to any government website or application via a MyServiceNSW account, making it easier for agencies to move to cloud services via automation, and consolidating the state government payments service.

The design of the fund has been drawn up in consultation with CIOs from across the state’s public sector.

Digital.nsw is now consulting with agencies to co-design each of the top 10 service concepts that will be included in the new funding model.

Digital.nsw expects to have a portfolio view of the whole-of-government services included in the next few weeks, and to release the Digital Restart Fund in the coming financial year.
