Singapore Digital Government Journey
Singapore’s digital government journey began in the 1980s with the National Computerisation Programme. Today, we envision a Smart Nation that leverages technology to improve the lives of citizens and business owners. GovTech spearheads the Government’s internal engineering and digital capabilities through synergy across the whole of government, as well as public-private and international collaborations.
Singapore’s Digital Government initiative and public sector digital transformation are led by the Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech). Formed in 2016 with the focus of building and strengthening the Singapore government’s internal engineering and digital capabilities, GovTech has empowered the whole of government (WOG) to centrally design, develop, and deliver digital services that are built for our citizens’ and businesses’ immediate needs. GovTech drives digital government transformation through these key capability centres - Application Design, Development and Deployment, Cybersecurity, Data Science & Artificial Intelligence, Government ICT Infrastructure, and Smart City Technology.

Our Digital Government Story
Watch our Government Chief Digital Technology Officer, Chan Cheow Hoe, share key lessons from Singapore’s Digital Government journey.
This series of 4 videos is a collaboration between GovTech and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA).
Our digital government efforts are aligned with the Digital Government Blueprint (DGB) - a statement of the Government’s ambition to better leverage data, harness new technologies, and drive broader efforts to build a digital economy and society. These efforts help support the larger Smart Nation vision, and can be classified into these few areas:
Tech for Public Good
Citizen Engagement and Co-creation
User and Business Journeys
AI and Data Driven Government
WOG Platforms and Tools
Diversity and Inclusion
In order to drive co-creation and learning among the public and private sectors, GovTech has set up the GovTech Digital Academy - a Practitioner for Practitioner academy that offers a suite of programmes for the public service workforce, as well as STACK conferences and STACK meetups for the tech community.
