Government future readiness
The prioritisation process involves an assessment of each proposal against six criteria.
- Ease of individuals’ engagement with Government
- Efficiency for businesses, industry and other organisations
- Government productivity
- Government reputation
- Government future readiness
- Secure Government systems
The extent to which the proposed digital or ICT investment positions the Government to be fit for the digital age and flexible to respond to longer-term emerging digital and ICT needs, challenges and opportunities. Investments that might score well against this criterion include those which:
- quantifiably contribute to one or more performance measures of the Digital Government Strategy, Digital Economy Strategy, Cyber Security Strategy, or the Australian Data Strategy
- create new re-useable capabilities that have been identified as a priority capability from iterations of the Digital and ICT Oversight Framework and that will be recorded in the AGA (or other shared capability repository)
- consider government use of Industry 4.0 capabilities (interconnectivity through the Internet of Things (IoT), access to real-time data, and the introduction of cyber-physical systems)
- coordinate government use of emerging digital and ICT Technology under evaluation in the Australian Government Architecture (emerging architecture)
- deliver evergreen and elastic government systems, platforms, and software as a service
- modernise or decommission legacy, software, platforms or services.
