Speedwell is excited to announce that we have been successful in achieving a position on the Digital Service Professionals Panel of the Australian Government Digital Transformation Office (DTO).
The Digital Transformation Office (DTO) was created to work with government agencies, users and private sector partners to deliver a better experience for Australians using government services. As part of the Prime Minister’s portfolio the Digital Service Standard ensures that digital teams will create systems that are simpler, clearer and faster for all users.
In accordance with this new initiative, the DTO offered an opportunity for businesses with digital expertise to work with government. Specifically, the DTO opened up the market with a new panel for digital and technology specialists to supply services to federal, state and territory government departments. A Request for Tender was offered to suppliers interested in providing agile digital services that meet the Digital Service Standard.
The Digital Service Standard:
- Understand user needs
- Have a multi-disciplinary team
- Agile and user-centered process
- Understand tools and systems
- Make it secure
- Consistent and responsive design
- Use open standards and common platforms
- Make source code open
- Make it accessible
- Test the service
- Measure performance
- Don’t forget the non-digital experience
- Encourage everyone to use the digital service
We congratulate the DTO on its forward-thinking digital agenda and look forward to our expanding role as a government service provider once the DTO Digital Marketplace goes live later this month.
