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

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).
