As of 1 August 2016, you may have noticed some positive changes to the look and feel of AusTender (the centralised publication website for Australian Government business opportunities, annual procurement plans, multi-use lists and awarded contracts), particularly if you were accessing it from a mobile device.

As part of the Government’s 2014–15 initiatives to assist small business, the AusTender public website was transitioned to a new layout and a more responsive design.

The new look website has a modern, cleaner design including a horizontal main menu and the addition of quick links to reports, multi-use lists and multi-agency access arrangements. It also provides greater support for mobile and tablet devices designed to improve access and usability. 

In addition, the download limit on AusTender’s public reports has been increased to 100,000 records providing more information and greater transparency on Commonwealth procurements and contracts.

Off course the new (mobile-responsive) look is great and more useful than earlier. As we all know that mobile traffic is one of the major part of our Web traffic today. Making a website mobile responsive is a thing which should be applied on every website now a days. So, i would like to say that efforts have been putted into a right direction.
