Finance intends approaching the market in May 2014 through a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a Government Content Management System – with the working title of GovCMS.
The Government Content Management System (GovCMS) is envisaged as an important service offering for Australian Commonwealth Government agencies. It represents a tangible implementation of the Government’s policy for eGovernment and the Digital Economy, which sets the direction to “Simplify Government ICT and eliminate duplicated, fragmented and sub-scale activities across agencies by requiring use of shared or cloud services where minimum efficient scale hurdles are not met,”
Our preference is for Software-as-a-Service on Public Cloud, using Open Source Drupal software.
As part of Finance’s consultations, I invite feedback and comments from industry on the draft version of the GovCMS Statement of Requirements
