Clear ICT policies, accompanied by practical guidelines and standards, provide a foundation for collaboration between public sector agencies. By identifying key business and technical issues, and specifying minimum compliance standards, the ICT policy framework enables agencies to work together confidently.
The ICT policies are not overly prescriptive and have been developed to be succinct, easy to understand and clearly articulate the direction, expectations and requirements of agencies. Each ICT policy will be supported by a number of documents including standards, frameworks and guidelines. These policy guidance materials are a growing collection of information to help agencies implement the ICT policies; and will be published on the GCIO website as they become available. Policies and associated guidance materials will be regularly reviewed for relevance and currency.
