Achieved Phase 2018

Commission the new Government Data Centre

Improving Government Services


Commission the new Government Data Centre at Millner to become NT Government's primary data centre.


This initiative is part of the data centre refresh works program that will relocate data centre services from the Chan Building in Darwin CBD and establish a dual data centre model for government.

A related project to procure a back-up data centre facility is recorded in the design list.

Commissioning the new Government Data Centre is a multi-year, multi-agency project which will complete in late 2019.


The work program will greatly reduce government's service continuity risk and set strong foundations for effective data management and future digital advances.

Relocation will enable the Chan Building site to be repurposed and provide better use of this central CBD site.

2019 progress update

The new Government Data Centre in Millner has been commissioned and services are being progressively transitioned from the current data centre in the Chan building. The program continues to be tracking to schedule with collaboration from government agencies and service providers.
