Strategies & Initiatives

Our strategies and initiatives are designed to make it easier for the NSW community, government agencies and industry to access government information and services. Here are some of the latest strategies and initiatives within DFSI.

The getting to know your digital needs consultation is about telling us your views on how you use digital technology and how we can make it easier for you to engage (and do business) with the NSW Government. Specifically, we want you to tell us how we can wrap our services around key events in your life, so you get the information you need just at the right time.

Better Regulation Division
The NSW Government’s Better Regulation initiative aims to make it easier to start and operate a business in NSW by encouraging innovation, boosting productivity and creating jobs. We are working with NSW Government regulators and regulatory policymakers in other jurisdictions to streamline regulatory processes, implement best practice regulation and identify reforms that reduce red tape for business and the community.

Social Innovation Council
Social Innovation Council  is a strategic partnership between the NSW Government and the Forum of Non-Government Agencies (FONGA), established to help foster innovation in the way human services are developed, delivered and measured.

NSW Data Analytics Centre
NSW Data Analytics Centre  facilitates data sharing between agencies to inform more efficient, strategic, whole-of-government evidence based decision making.

Digital+
Digital + is the 2014-15 update to the NSW Government ICT Strategy which outlines a range of actions to build on the Government's program of ICT-led business transformation. Actions include the development of a roadmap to accelerate the move to digital government, initiatives for small and medium enterprises, and standards for cloud and telecommunications.

Data NSW
Data NSW brings together a list of NSW Government datasets available in one searchable website. It is part of the Open Data initiative of the NSW ICT Strategy. It was designed to make data more accessible to the public and to industry to stimulate innovative approaches to service delivery.

OpenGov
OpenGov NSW is a searchable online repository for NSW Government publications such as annual reports, strategic plans, guides and policy documents, as well as information released by agencies under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009.

Government Data Centres
Government Data Centres (GovDC) provides two world-class data centres in Silverwater and Wollongong to enable consolidation of all 130 existing Government data centres. These centres which are purpose built, modern, reliable, energy efficient and secure will support the new approach to buying and using ICT services “on-tap”.
