Making it easier for agencies to create modern, affordable, responsive websites to better connect government with people.
WHAT IS GOVme and GOVCMS?
In 2014 the Australian government announced a plan to implement web content management system that all government agencies could easily use. The result was govCMS, a whole-of-government content management system based on the open source Drupal platform and delivered on Acquia Cloud. GOVme was developed by Captovate specifically to meet Australian Government website guidelines incorporating a modern theme, helping users to adhere to the Australian Government Web Standards. Prior to this there was no standardised platform and government agencies were using a number of website suppliers, which incurred high software maintenance and licensing costs.
WHY IS GOVCMS BASED ON DRUPAL?
As an open-source, modular content management system, Drupal was the perfect choice for govCMS as Drupal modules can be shared easily between public sector agencies and the community. Other govCMS features and benefits include world class security and compliance, standardisation of accessibility design, and time saved on procurement and staff training.
