Welcome to GOVIS

GOVIS is the network of technology and information professionals in NZ central government. On this site you can find out about our networking events coming up, this year's conference and also view our library of past presentations. If your agency is not a member, we invite you to join now.


A reminder that the GOVIS AGM for 2014 will be held at The Backbencher on September 4th commencing at 4:15 pm.

The AGM will provide an update on the societies’ performance over the past year as well as providing the opportunity for new members and officers to be elected onto the GOVIS Committee.  If you are interested in joining the committee or being nominated for one of the officer roles please email govis-secretary@govis.org.nz

The agenda for the 2014 AGM is available here and the minutes from the 2013 AGM are available here. It is proposed to amend the Rules of GOVIS and this is available here; amendments are highlighted in yellow. 


The AGM will be followed by networking drinks and nibbles – a chance for GOVIS to thank you for your continued support and, of course, it’s a great opportunity to catch up with colleagues.

"I am not a number": Myths and new evidence of the government-citizen experience


Who are the New Zealanders we deliver services to?  The Result 10 team has been researching how New Zealanders engage with government. The big take-away is that life is about events, not agencies, and we need to re-think the linear 'vanilla' experience we assume customers have of services.


We will then discuss what the research findings mean for service design as our agencies move to a digital by default model of service delivery. By the end of the session we will have polled the room for ideas we really like, and these will be banked as topics for further exploration and learning. 


Venue: Lower Ground Floor room, National Library, Cnr Molesworth St and Aitken St.

Date/Time: Wednesday September 10th, 12 -1.45

Programme: Light lunch served at 12.00 

12.15 Presentation with Corinne and Annika from Result 10. Opportunity discussions and testing 

Approx 1.pm-1.30 reporting, questions, voting. Session wraps up around 1.45.
