Rationalise the number of bespoke or standalone ICT systems


Identify and consider ways to rationalise the number of bespoke or standalone ICT systems used across government as recommended in 'A plan for budget repair – final report'.


The ICT system stocktake will identify the range of agency systems and inform consideration of standalone agency systems that perform similar functions and should be rationalised.

Bespoke systems will also be carefully considered to assess their ongoing viability and need comparative to any commercial-off-the-shelf alternatives.


This rationalisation initiative will, over time, deliver efficiencies through economies of scale and standardisation.
