Prime is the Information Technology (IT) solution component of the FMT program, replacing a number of historical systems. Prime consolidates functions within a single platform, for use by all agencies in the Government.
Features of Prime include:
- program-based reporting for meaningful management and performance information to support resource and investment decisions
- improved efficiency through automated operating processes
- a single source of public sector financial and performance management information.
A crucial benefit of Prime is the ability to derive much more current information on the state’s finances than previously available. This information will support the Government as it makes financial decisions that impact the state for years to come.
Access to Prime
Prime is the NSW Government platform used by Government Agencies to submit data for budget, performance monitoring and reporting.
To get access to Prime you must:
- be employed by the State

To learn more about Prime you can access the Prime Service Desk, a Knowledge Base where training materials are available and will be accessible at the same time as Prime access is granted – including webinars, presentation packs, quick reference guides and simulations.
