The implementation and transition planning of govCMS is ongoing.
Subject to the placement of Contracts under the Head Agreement, the Respondent will be required to provide implementation Services to reflect the requirements in this Statement of Requirements and as specified in the applicable Contract. Set out below is background information that explains the extent of implementation and transition that may be required from the Respondent.
As at January 2018 there are 64 sites hosted on the fully-managed (SaaS) version of govCMS. There are 117 sites on the self-managed (PaaS) version of govCMS.
govCMS is a whole-of-government platform and provides services to Commonwealth, state and local government entities.
The Respondent must, at a minimum, deliver the functional requirements of govCMS (Solution) outlined in the Statement of Requirements. The Solution provided for govCMS must be a content management system (CMS) with a website hosting platform (Hosting).
The Solution will be required to achieve an Unclassified-DLM accreditation.
govCMS is not a mandated product. Agencies choose to use it because it offers value for money. If the provider changes, as a result of this approach to market, owners of PaaS sites will have up to 12 months, after their anniversary date, to move to the new provider. Agencies preferring to move away from govCMS would need to procure a new provider for their site(s) in the normal way.
