The initiative, launched in 2016, sees expert staff partner with SA Government agencies to help them turn inefficient paper forms into seamless online forms, making it easier for the community and businesses to engage with government services.

The State of the data and digital nation report showcases the progress of a number of other key digital and data initiatives underway across the nation, at both Commonwealth and State and Territory government levels. It highlights potential areas for collaboration between jurisdictions to improve government services for Australians.
