NSW ICT Digital Sourcing Update
For the first AIIA NSW Sundowner event for 2023, Mark Lenzner Executive Director ICT / Digital Sourcing and Marina Troyak, Director of Supplier, Policy, and Innovation Development will provide an update on the ICT Digital Sourcing function and various procurement pathways open to organisations that wish to transact with the NSW Government.
The NSW Government is a recognised leader in the delivery of digital government services and was the first to establish a Department of Customer Service. Government digitisation strategies such as Beyond Digital Strategy, Smart Places Strategy, AI Strategy and the Turning ideas into jobs – Accelerating research and development in NSW Action Plan all identify innovation procurement as a key enabler. The NSW Economic Blueprint 2040 aspiration for ‘better government performance’ recommends examination of the NSW Government’s procurement practices to ensure innovation is encouraged.
The NSW Government is creating innovation procurement pathways to make it easier to find and develop the best solutions to problems people face in NSW. Innovation procurement will stimulate growth in research and development and the innovation and emerging technology sector.
