GovNext-ICT services is modernising information communication technology (ICT) in the public sector by supporting government agencies to transform from individual ownership of ICT infrastructure to procuring infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
Adoption of GovNext-ICT services will drive long-term savings across the public sector by reducing ICT infrastructure duplication as well as harnessing whole-of-government buying power.
GovNext-ICT underpins the Digital WA Strategy by simplifying and connecting government which will improve service delivery.
GovNext-ICT aims to:
- Increase efficiency and reduce costs of ICT infrastructure by consolidating 60 government compute and data storage centres into three cloud-based data centres, and reducing over 50 physical networks into a single, secure, interconnected network.
- Shift from a capital-intensive, owner operator model to consumers of modern, on-demand ICT infrastructure services.
- Reduce risk of aging infrastructure and improve government’s digital capabilities.
- Streamline and simplify the procurement process of ICT infrastructure, using a whole-of-government common use agreement with pre-qualified contractor services.
The aim is for public sector agencies to transition their ICT infrastructure into the GovNext-ICT model over the next two years.
