Overview of Our Work
Innovation and technology provide opportunities for B/Ds to strengthen capability and agility so that they can better serve the community, particularly in an ever-changing environment. We support the Government in promoting the adoption of innovation and technology by B/Ds. We organise different events to help B/Ds build awareness and knowledge of the latest innovation and technology available in the market.
Programmes and projects
Through the implementation of different programmes and projects, we help B/Ds to identify and analyse business needs and challenges, build awareness and knowledge of the latest I&T developments in the market, and optimise various services with I&T solutions as soon as possible. We also assist B/Ds to look for suitable I&T solutions.
The I&T Awards
To encourage wider adoption of innovation and technology by bureaux/departments (B/Ds) to improve government services, we collaborate with the Civil Service College to incorporate the Innovation and Technology Awards (I&T Awards) into the Civil Service Outstanding Service Award Scheme from 2022 onward to give recognition to B/Ds that are proactive in coming up with and implementing innovative measures and impactful technology solutions.Know More
