Author: 
John Sheridan - CIO & CISO

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Whole-of-Government govCMS Drupal Services Panel (SON3456725). Finance issued a Request for Tender for the new panel through Austender on
16 December 2016. The panel will be in operation until 30 June 2019 and has two optional 12 month extensions.

The initial panel includes:

  • Bliss Media
  • Catalyst IT Australia
  • PreviousNext
  • Adelphi Digital Consulting Group
  • Cogent Business Solutions
  • Digital Gardens
  • Loud & Clear Creative
  • Ice Media
  • OPC IT
  • Acquia Inc

More suppliers will be announced once contracts are finalised.

The panel was established so all government agencies can buy the Drupal services they need from a range of service providers, including small and medium enterprises.

The panel can also be used by agencies to help them build, maintain and support other Drupal websites that are not hosted by govCMS.

Two categories of services can be procured from the panel:

  • Category 1 is for services based on specific skill sets, available at hourly and daily maximum rates. Services available in this category include:

    • Solution Design and Technical Architecture Advisory Services
    • Drupal Application Programming Services
    • Build and Migration Services
    • Quality Assurance Services
    • Integration Services
    • Application Support Services
    • Documentation Services
    • Agile Services
  • Category 2 is for services based on fixed-price packages. These guarantee a minimum specific scope, and in some cases, a variety of sub-categories that offer a range of different pricing options, or package sizes. Services available in this category include:

    • Website assessments and advisory services - 1, 3 and 5 day workshops to help you plan your project
    • Website re-hosting and installation - perfect if you've already got a Drupal website and want to use govCMS PaaS hosting
    • Drupal theme development and enhancement - create the look and feel for your site, or make some changes
    • Content migration and consolidation - great for moving content from your old website to your new Drupal site
    • Site audits and technical reviews - for existing Drupal sites that might need some fine-tuning
    • On-going Drupal application support - blocks of hours you can use over time, including after-hours support
