One-day site assessment

Our one-day site assessment will help you determine if GovCMS is right for you.

Assessment overview

The one-day site assessment is suitable for small sites and/or simple projects. The one day is broken into a half-day meeting and half a day for report generation. The final report details and assesses the site’s requirements against the current GovCMS functionality and makes a recommendation for which service offering is the best fit - SaaS or PaaS.

Cost: $4,095.00 + GST

Engagement process

The one-day site assessment follows four stages:

  1. Review brief - Agency sends Salsa Digital a high level project brief reflecting basic requirements and/or project key business drivers.

  2. Intake and alignment - Brief 30-45 minute intake phone call to walk through and align on project brief, scope expectations and overall engagement. (A lightweight questionnaire/interview can be conducted in lieu of a brief.)

  3. Lightweight discovery - A half-day on-site interactive workshop with key stakeholders to harvest requirements as well as educate on GovCMS SaaS vs PaaS options/features.

  4. Assessment report - The assessment report covers GovCMS SaaS vs PaaS viability and includes a recommendation on best fit.


The outputs from the one-day site assessment are:

  1. Site functionality matrix - Visual representation of all desired functionality.

  2. GovCMS viability matrix - Each functional requirement is classified to determine the level of configuration/customisation, and therefore compliance, with GovCMS SaaS.

  3. GovCMS assessment report - Executive summary slide deck for stakeholders representing assessment findings and SaaS vs PaaS recommendation.


  • Clear understanding on GovCMS SaaS viability and optional mitigations and/or alternatives for areas of non-compliance.

  • Enables key stakeholders to make an informed decision on GovCMS SaaS vs PaaS.

Other good things to know:

  1. GovCMS SaaS compliance classification - for each high level requirement a classification will be given on the level of GovCMS SaaS/PaaS configuration required. For example, basic config, theme development, contrib module or custom module, etc.

  2. Optional mitigation strategies or alternatives are provided if/when SaaS non-compliant requirements are identified.
