PNG govt digital master plan

More than thirty officers from government departments and state agencies attended a two-day workshop on the Digital Government Master Plan Development recently in Port Moresby.

The officers contributed ideas to progress the development of PNG Digital Government Master Plan to support unified government ICT services going forward.

Project Manager for Integrated Government Information System, Jack Tomon, said the workshop will help re-validate and guide existing plans and complement the implementation of the National ICT roadmap.

The ICT roadmap includes digital infrastructure, digital government, digital services, digital skills, digital business environment and digital safety.

Tomon says it will help the whole of government approach to ensure successful, sustainable and cost-effective public ICT programs and services, providing the basis for government services’ standardisation, best practices and supported by a uniform legal and regulatory framework.

This workshop was a partnership program between the Department of Communication and Information with the International Telecommunication Union and supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australia, and National Information Society Agency of Korea and NICTA.
