NSW government slows its roll on digital ID

A pilot program to test New South Wales’ forthcoming decentralised digital identity system is at a standstill, with no new trials of the NSW Digital ID taking place since the arrival of the Minns government earlier this year.

As the federal government ramps up efforts to have an economy-wide digital identity scheme in place by mid-next year, it has also emerged that less than 70 people have tested the NSW system in two of the three closed pilots conducted to date.

The much-vaunted NSW Digital ID – a legacy of former Digital minister Victor Dominello – represents the next major step in the state’s digital transformation and builds on the successful digital driver’s licence in 2019.
