The Department of Higher Education has achieved efficiencies through automation and digitization of cumbersome processes.

They and are now looking at how they incorporate ICT into the curriculum.

Deputy Secretary, Steven Matainaho, says it is critical for all Government departments to be aligned to ensure clear direction in terms of digital transformation, and this clarity was communicated directly from the Government.  

The secretary commented that it was cost effective for the collaboration across all of the Government departments which helped the customers they served by way of improved processes, less waiting times and significantly improved performances for all Papua New Guineans.

Matainaho was adamant that without the Government supporting a digital economy in Papua New Guinea, through transformation, it would be very difficult to ensure the country gained the necessary traction for reform through its citizens.
