Recommendation 1

Elevate WA’s focus on accelerating digital transformation and connectivity infrastructure


1. Elevate WA’s focus on accelerating digital transformation and the priority given to underlying connectivity infrastructure by:

  1. allocating a lead state agency with a statewide, whole of government focus to proactively increase digital technology adoption and ensure digital services are more accessible and responsive to community and business needs 
  2. developing and implementing an integrated statewide plan for digital connectivity, supported by a prioritisation framework, to guide future government investment 
  3. developing a collaboration model, adopting a coordinated WA Government approach to federal programs and encouraging private sector investment
  4. providing multi-year WA Government funding and leveraging Australian Government co-investment opportunities for initiatives that have been prioritised in the statewide plan for digital connectivity.
