Minister for Finance and Services Dominic Perrottet today announced $1.4 billion in the 2014-15 NSW Budget to improve and provide essential services throughout the State.
“This year’s Budget shows the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s commitment to making our great State Australia’s economic powerhouse,” Mr Perrottet said.
“We’ve provided a substantial amount of funding for initiatives that cut red tape, reduce duplication and improve the delivery of frontline services.
“The Budget continues this government’s record of economic responsibility and robust governance by delivering improvements and efficiencies without burdening tax-payers.
“Key areas of funding for the Office of Finance and Services for 2014-15 include strengthening collection of state revenue and debt recovery efforts, greater development of spatial data and mapping capabilities, and reforms to procurement and management of fleet vehicles, information and communications technology (ICT) and other services.”
Major investments include:
“The State Records Authority NSW will also receive $22 million to improve their capacity to accept, preserve and digitalise records, which will not only help to make the vast collection more accessible but to preserve our State’s history for future generations to enjoy.”
