Our story so far

Find out how SDP began and how others in government are using SDP and the benefits they've realised.

The SDP story began in 2016, with a business case to consolidate all Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) websites onto a common platform. This was a successful proof of concept for a whole of Victorian government consolidation program.  

Since then, we have begun to work with our colleagues across the Victorian Public Service to realize the full benefits of a whole of government approach to digital delivery. 

  • 90+ sites consolidated  
  • 9 Departments on SDP 
  • 400+ Victorian public servants trained
