What is Single Digital Presence?
Single Digital Presence (SDP) is a digital platform built by Salsa Digital and the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC). It’s been set up to make it easier for citizens to find, understand and use Victorian Government information, while also making building websites easier and cheaper for all Victorian Government agencies who choose to leverage SDP.

Why choose Salsa Digital?
Salsa won the Single Digital Presence tender in 2017 on the strength of our response, which not only demonstrated our ability to build a distribution to meet the requirements but also showed innovative thinking around the open platform (which then became Bay).
“Salsa has been a true partner. They’ve shared the vision for open government solutions and they’ve communicated with authenticity, and frequently. They have a highly skilled workforce and also know when to bring in external consultants. They haven’t done what’s comfortable and familiar they’ve stretched their own innovation.” Amber Benjafield, Senior Project and Engagement Manager, DPC
