The NSW Government is creating innovation procurement pathways to make it easier to find and develop the best solutions to problems people face in NSW. NSW Government already has a strong innovation procurement practice in digital accelerators and in agencies with more mature and resourced procurement functions. However, additional tools and resources are needed to enable buyers to confidently engage industry to assess, codesign and/or buy leading edge ICT & Digital products and services with agility, while meeting probity, value and transparency principles. The project is building and testing tools and service enablers that allow buyers to navigate risk and reward, and adapt, trial and scale solutions to meet buyer unique needs to deliver desired project outcomes. This session will focus on the key enablers and key challenges facing Buyers of ICT Solutions today.
