Digital Government

We support government in advancing digital initiatives, strategy advice and assurance controls to improve services in the Territory, through:

  • digital policy
  • telecommunications
  • ICT governance
  • digital communications
  • cyber strategy
  • digital strategy and
  • data strategy.

We are responsible for the development of the Digital Territory Strategy for government.

It will create a framework to promote and enable digital capabilities within the Territory. The strategy will identify the objectives and priorities for digital services and is underpinned by five digital directions:

  1. growing jobs and business
  2. connecting Territory communities
  3. building digital skills
  4. enabling smarter communities
  5. improving government services.
