Canberra is a unique city, with a high quality of life that most cities aspire to.
It’s a great place to raise children. To start a business. To take advantage of world class cultural institutions and enjoy the great outdoors. As we enter a new decade it’s time to look at new and innovative ways to make a great place even better.
The ACT Government wants to support a more connected Canberra, taking advantage of advances in technology and data to make life better for Canberrans and the businesses that employ them.
The ACT Digital Strategy is not just about the technology. It doesn’t dictate the bits and the bytes. It’s about how we use technology to further improve the quality of life for all Canberrans. It sets out a plan of action and makes a range of commitments to the ACT community based on the following timeless principles:
- People in our community are at the centre of everything we do, from policy making to city planning and service delivery
- The data we collect and protect is used and shared transparently, to make better decisions and enhance the wellbeing of people
- Design and co-design is how we manage change and ensure results are achieved
- Strategic, open relationships with a wide range of industry groups creates greater value for the community
The ACT Government is positioning technology at the heart of our decision making, and using it to drive better outcomes for our community. Good, design and implementation can achieve better service delivery for people, use information more effectively and free up our staff to focus on identifying and servicing those in our community most in need.
