The Australian Public Service Commission (APSC), is a policy agency within the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. Its purpose is to position the Australian Public Service workforce for the future to ensure it meets the demands and expectations of the Australian Government and people. It aims to continuously improve people management, manager capability and professional development across the APS.
Morpht was engaged in 2020 to upgrade four of the APSC’s sites from GovCMS 7 to GovCMS 9. This involved re-architecting the sites and improving designs.
The APSC had four websites that required upgrading onto the GovCMS 8 platform to prepare for the migration to GovCMS 9 platform.
The vision for these site was to:
- Deliver fresh new visual designs or improve on existing styles
- align their design with The Australian Government Design System (AGDS) and ensure compliance with web accessibility standards
- Improve the content model
- rebuild the sites onto the GovCMS 8/9 SaaS platform
Within 6 months Morpht produced all 4 sites for the APSC. Three have launched and the fourth one is not far behind. Morpht delivered the project 30 days early, as a result providing much needed time for the APSC to work on perfecting content on the sites prior to launch.
Convivial for GovCMS provided the framework needed to deliver the project on time, within budget and adding more value than expected. The project fostered a great working relationship which opened the door for further collaboration with the APSC on new projects for the rest of 2021.
