Annual Report 2016-17 | Department of Corporate and Information Services4 IN TR O D U CTIO N Chief Executives Foreword 2016-17 in Review I am pleased to present the annual report of the Department of Corporate and Information Services (DCIS) for the year ending 30 June 2017. The report provides a comprehensive account of the departments functions and performance, and approved budgets and resources. Over 2016-17, our client centred approach and culture of innovation, improvement and engagement has seen results being delivered across the DCIS 2016-2018 Strategic Plan. Our people continue to be a core part of our departments strategy and success. The department has upheld its commitment to the development of skilled leaders through our Emerging Leaders Program. Ongoing support, empowerment and development of staff is increasing our performance, contribution and value as a central part of the Northern Territory Government. DCIS was tasked with greater responsibility for advancing digital initiatives in 2016-17, with the formation of the Office of Digital Government. The focus on digital government places DCIS in a digital leadership role, with recruitment to the Executive Director of the office to be completed in 2017. The offices roles include Digital Policy and Telecommunications; ICT Governance; Cyber Security and Design; and Online Services. Progressing further initiatives related to data and digital services is likely to see the offices roles expand in the future. This team has already completed several achievements with more ongoing or scheduled to commence from next year. Important programs with Telstra and the Centre for Appropriate Technology to expand mobile phone and broadband services in remote Territory locations continued to progress over the year. New mobile phone and/or broadband services were connected in three remote communities and 12 mobile hotspots were installed. 'The departments role has expanded again in 2016-17, with the talents and dedication of DCIS staff highlighted as we embraced the changes, enhanced our service quality and strengthened our commitment to drive improvements that support the broader operations of the Northern Territory Government.'
