What is GovCMS?
GovCMS was designed by the Australian Government with a focus on streamlining government digital service delivery. Out of the box, GovCMS ensures your website is secure, robust and flexible, while adhering to the Australian Government’s Digital Service Standard and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) level AA.
You can find out more about the GovCMS project at https://www.govcms.gov.au/.
GovCMS is not some obscure platform—it’s based on Drupal, one of the most modern and popular Content Management Systems available. This ensures your GovCMS project taps into the vast Drupal community of over 1.39 million members, and more than 44,000 free modules used to extend Drupal’s functionality.
Over 320 Australian Government sites using GovCMS
As of February 2020 there were over 320 government websites using the GovCMS platform, including large high profile departments: https://www.govcms.gov.au/why-govcms.
