South Australia plans to adopt a digital-first strategy that will see government services go online as a default. The Premier has signed a declaration of intent.
The South Australian public service will transition to being “digital by default”, Premier Jay Weatherill said earlier this week.
“A modern public service should be paper free,” Weatherill (pictured) told an event hosted by the Australian Information Industry Association on Tuesday.
According to the digital by default declaration signed by the Premier at the event, this will see services designed to be usable via the internet and smartphones, to meet accessibility requirements, and where appropriate will allow data to be made openly available as part of the government’s open data program. Public sector organisations will be expected to ensure their workforces are skilled in the use of digital technology.
