Principles

1. Future investment in ICT will:

  1. be consistent with the vision and objectives of the ICT Strategy;
  2. be based on sound and agreed criteria;
  3. require an understanding of the current situation and future needs;
  4. consider the cost to individual agencies of whole-of-government implementations;
  5. consider all benefits, implications and opportunities, at both agency level and
    whole-of-government level;
  6. require priority investments to be supported by sound business cases;
  7. build whole-of-government ICT capacity and develop common approaches to ICT;
  8. ensure the business risks to government are identified and managed; and
  9. promote connectedness and compatibility.

2. There will be a mixture of whole-of-government and agency provision of ICT such that:

  1. agencies will use common ICT products and services, where they are available, to meet common business needs;
  2. all agencies will work with the lead agency providing such common ICT products and services to ensure they meet business needs;
  3. the lead agency providing such common ICT product or service must take into account the business needs of agencies and deliver real benefits to government as a whole;
  4. an agency with specialist business needs will address those needs;
  5. progressive consolidation of common ICT infrastructure will be achieved;
  6. common business processes will use common business practices and common supporting ICT;
  7. key information sets will be shared across agencies through the use of standards; and
  8. the integration of service delivery will include the integration of supporting ICT.

3. Planning, development, and operation of ICT will:

  1. use best practice methodologies for ICT service delivery and project management;
  2. be conducted with a co-operative and flexible approach between agencies;
  3. be subject to an approval process to ensure alignment with the ICT Strategy; and
  4. factor in the total life-cycle and all actual costs.
