Wellington company, SilverStripe, has secured the contract for a single web platform for government agencies.

Internal Affairs Minister Chris Tremain said creating a single web platform will improve consistency and efficiency while bringing savings to taxpayers.

"A web platform is the underlying system which allows an agency to create and deliver high quality websites for New Zealanders," Tremain said.

"Having one common platform will enable government departments to share and reuse website features."

Tremain said the common capability shows potential savings of $50,000 per project which when spread over the whole of Government could bring savings of more than $500,000 per year.

And he said it's great that the initiative has gone to a New Zealand company.

Another New Zealand company, Revera, will manage technical infrastructure.
