What's new

The beyond digital strategy is a living document.

Every calendar quarter we do a minor release where we review new strategies, policies, frameworks, and programs to update the contents of this strategy where required.

Every 18 months we do a major release where we complete a customer centred approach to review and update any part of the strategy required. This includes research, synthesis and co-design with industry, business, academia, NSW government departments, other jurisdictions, our customers, and digital and customer domain experts.

Historical information will start to be available as we do releases post the November 2021 Major release.

The strategic directions objectives and actions have been refined and updated. This release also replaces the strategic directions of “Invest for customer outcomes” and “Deliver better front-line services” with the following:

  • Build a strong digital economy – Extending our invest for customer outcomes to include additional objectives that will rebuild a stronger NSW
  • Deliver safe resilient services – Extending our focus of investing in front line services to include additional transformation to deliver safe and resilient services.
