Customers today expect more secure, transparent, accessible, and responsive services from government. And those expectations are rising with more customers transacting online every day.
The NSW Government has already taken the bold move to create the Department of Customer Service. Our next step is to reimagine how we can go beyond digital to deliver a truly customer-driven strategy.
This strategy embeds customer commitments and outcomes into the heart of a digital strategy to truly go Beyond Digital.
Regardless of what service is being delivered, whether it’s face-to-face, online or behind the scenes, customers consistently tell us they expect certain behaviours from NSW Government.
These behaviours now form our Customer Service Commitments
These commitments outline our promise to customers on what they can expect when receiving all NSW Government services.

We need actions across our five strategic directions to implement the strategy.
We must put customers at the centre of everything we do. We need to deliver Government Made Easy by engaging through data and insights.
The strategy reimagines investing for better outcomes, in particular to deliver better frontline technology.
And, it will help us create a World Class Public Service with capabilities for the future, particularly in regional NSW.
That is our commitment.
