FST Government New Zealand 2020

15 October, 2020
Venue: Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa

Te Mahere mō te Whakaurunga Matihiko, or the Digital Inclusion Blueprint, released in 2019, is a hallmark of NZ’s progressive technology agenda – a vision for an inclusive, citizen-centric public service that empowers engagement through technology.

However, while digital technologies are seen as the critical artery of interaction between the government its citizenry, NZ’s public service has too often failed to establish a similar cooperative link between its own agencies. Hampered by a lack of collaboration and chronic data siloing between agencies, successive NZ governments have been stymied in their efforts to deliver a holistic, all-in-one service offering. The state’s Chief Digital Office has sought to rectify this, creating a “centrally-led and collaboratively-delivered” digital program that has sought to break down traditional barriers and establish a new framework for cooperative government services delivery.

The FST Government New Zealand conference will explore the next phase of NZ’s collaborative digital program and technological trends shaping the country’s public sector.
