Fixed price GovCMS services

Salsa offers a variety of fixed price GovCMS service packages to provide budget and timeline certainty for customers when requirements and outcomes are known, simple, and well-defined.

GovCMS fixed price services

Salsa’s main fixed price GovCMS services are:

Website assessments and advisory services

Make an informed decision on whether GovCMS is right for you. We’ll conduct an assessment to determine viability, approach, risks, costs and timelines based on your requirements.

Fixed price packages range from 1-day small-site assessments to 5-days large-site assessments.

Website rehosting and installation

Migrate your Drupal site onto a resilient, secure, monitored and fully managed public cloud platform backed by a 99.99% uptime SLA. Salsa will work with you to setup and migrate your new Drupal site (any supported version or distribution) onto the GovCMS Platform as a Service (PaaS) secure public cloud offering.

Fixed price packages range from one flat rate for simple sites to 20, 40 and 60 hour migration support packages to accommodate more complex setups.

GovCMS theme development and enhancement services

Theme your GovCMS Drupal site to represent your agency’s brand and visual look and feel. Salsa will apply your branding and tailored designs to your GovCMS Drupal application.

Fixed price packages range from small (up to five content types), medium (up to 10 content types), large (up to 20 content types) and flexible (based on an hourly rate).

Content migration and consolidation

Migrate your proprietary and/or legacy site onto Drupal GovCMS backed by a resilient, secure, monitored and fully managed public cloud platform with a 99.99% uptime SLA. Salsa can audit and update your IA structure and/or content for a refresh, or simply setup and migrate your existing content onto your new SaaS or PaaS GovCMS site.

Manual content loading and content auditing/writing packages are based on a per page rate, and automated migration is a fixed price per content structure.

Site audits and technical reviews

Site audits and technical reviews help you identify any problems in your site, including security and performance issues. Salsa’s site audits and technical reviews will pinpoint issues and give you recommendations on how to fix them.

We have one fixed price package for site audits, one for security audits and one for performance audits.

Theme review

Make sure your site is accessible by all users and optimised to be viewed on different devices and internet browsers. Salsa will also make sure your site complies with the relevant design system.

Fixed price packages cover simple (up to three different page templates), intermediate (up to six different page templates) and complex (up to 10 different page templates).

Code review

Does your website’s module code follow best practice to maximise your site’s performance and stability? Salsa’s code review services take a deep dive into the code behind your site to ensure it’s optimised and follows Drupal/GovCMS best practice.

Fixed price packages cover simple (up to 500 lines of code per module), intermediate (up to 1,000 lines of code per module) and complex (up to 5,000 lines of code per module).

Ongoing GovCMS application support

Whether you’re on GovCMS SaaS or PaaS, ongoing GovCMS application support ensures the application layer for your website continues to remain secure and up-to-date (PaaS only), while also allowing you to build new enhancements and ad-hoc features.

Several fixed price packages are available in block hours or as a monthly retainer. Emergency support packages are also available.


Within each of these areas we offer a variety of services to meet your specific needs.

What is GovCMS?

GovCMS is a whole-of-government open source web content management system designed by government for government and hosted on the public cloud. It’s provided by the Federal Department of Finance to give agencies the tools to build, migrate and manage websites.

Why GovCMS?

GovCMS allows government agencies to focus their time and budget on delivering great content and digital services by taking away the common problems agencies face when managing their web presence. These problems include:

  1. Capacity: Limited resources to build, manage or secure websites.

  2. Capability: Limited staff with the necessary skills to build, manage or secure websites.

  3. Compliance: The need to comply with government standards around design, accessibility, privacy, security, sovereignty and information/records management.

Benefits of GovCMS

Some benefits GovCMS can provide to government agencies include:

  • Simplified and faster procurement of services with Department of Finance GovCMS procurement arrangements access our services directly from the panel of qualified direct source providers
  • An easy-to-use content management system (CMS), with no need to know HTML coding to create and manage content

  • Security patching, support and 24/7 monitoring

  • Ongoing maintenance and testing

  • Built on Drupal open source software so you can reuse and adapt from an active and thriving global community

  • Responsive web design so your site can function and be easily viewed on a range of devices including tablets and smartphones

  • Best practice service design based on the Digital Transformation Agency's (DTA's) Australian Government Digital Service Standards

  • Compliance with the DTA’s Design System

Two GovCMS options to choose from

There are two GovCMS options to choose from:

  1. GovCMS SaaS: Software as a Service (SaaS) is a fully managed offering, removing the burden of managing your own software, licensing and infrastructure.

  2. GovCMS PaaS: Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a partially managed, infrastructure hosting only, offering in a dedicated cloud environment. PaaS gives agencies greater freedom to customise functionality however requires you to manage the Drupal application layer of your site(s).
