Technology strategy

We set an example for other agencies in how we deliver our internal ICT services and products. Standing firm by a ‘cloud first’ approach for corporate systems, we do not own any ICT Infrastructure. We use multiple solutions to meet our ICT needs.

Our current and beta agency websites are hosted on cloud.gov.au, a platform that makes it easier for government to build digital services. Our website is managed in accordance with the Archives Act 1983 and follows National Archives of Australia guidance.

Our primary unclassified collaboration suite network is G suite hosted by Google. The suite integrates with a wide range of agile products such as Trello, Asana, Slack, Github and Jira. All these products allow for real-time collaboration across multiple locations.

Our protected network is hosted by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. Our staff can access the network anywhere and across the multiple locations.

We are trialling Office 365 to become our primary corporate network, which we have tested as a pilot as part of the development and testing phase. This will provide a single, protected-level collaboration suite for all staff and replace the majority of the G Suite and portions of services provided over the protected network.
