Posted March 06, 2018 11:03:10It’s called the “Web Governance Template”, but it could change the way the government’s websites are run.
The template is a collaboration between the Australian Government and the Australian Information Technology Association (AITA), a group of about 250 IT professionals from across the country.
It is being developed as part of a new government web management toolkit, called the Government Web Management System (GWMS).
The toolkit is designed to help government departments, including the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), and their staff use and manage their websites.
In a nutshell, the template allows organisations to add web pages to their websites to facilitate the interaction with customers, customers’ users, customers, users and the public.
What it does and how to use itThe template allows for a range of features that the government does not have the ability to implement themselves.
For example, the templates are designed to enable users to add “citizen science” content to their web pages, to provide the government with a way to communicate with their customers.
You can also add new information or content that is not currently part of the government website, or create a section of a website that contains a section on a particular topic.
Another feature is the ability for the government to “predict” which types of content will be shown to users.
And the templates provide a way for government departments to integrate with the web content services offered by other organisations.
“We want to empower our stakeholders to make the most of their own digital assets and our new Government Web Service (GWS) will allow us to do just that,” Dr Scott Thwaites, the chief executive of AITA, said.
When it was first announced the templates were not designed to be used in full, but Dr Thwaits said the organisation was now moving ahead with the project, and it is now ready to launch the first version of the template.
He said the templates would be available to the public “within the next 12 months”.
“It will provide an effective, simple, flexible, and cost effective way for governments to manage and deliver their websites in an effective and efficient manner,” Dr Thwaites said.
“The template will enable governments to create web pages that interact with users in a way that is most effective and cost-effective.”
The templates are being developed by the Australian Telecommunications and Information Commission (ATIC) and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICIT).
There are two versions of the templates.
The “standard” version will provide the Government with a range.
The more powerful version will be used by the Prime Ministers Office, the Australian Department of Human Services, and the Department of Agriculture.
But, according to Dr Thwarps, the more powerful template will be available “within two years”.
It allows organisations “to provide a variety of services, such as customer service, customer support, customer analytics, customer services, marketing, marketing services, research, research and development, government website management, and social media management”.
The AITTIC’s Mr Paul Cocks said the template would “provide the government of Australia with a clear roadmap for how it can best deliver its online service”.
“The template has been developed to help governments manage their digital assets in a streamlined and effective manner and it will help them achieve that through the use of a simple, straightforward and cost efficient structure,” Mr Cocks wrote in a blog post.
Mr Cocks noted that the templates also provide a means for government agencies to incorporate social media into their website.
Government web pages could be designed using the template The Government Web Manager (GWM) is a tool that allows organisations, businesses and individuals to add a range, including social media, to their website in a number of ways.
Some of these features, such an ability to embed video, images and graphics, allow for a wide range of content to be added to government websites, Mr Cock wrote.
Other features include the ability of the Government to predict which content will appear on a given government website.
The template also includes the ability “to create webpages that interact directly with customers and users”, which can be used to provide a “great user experience”, according to Mr Celsons blog.
So far, the AITC has created a set of templates for the Government of Australia.
Dr Thwaets said the AitA and NICIT templates were developed in collaboration with the Department for Business, Innovation and Employment.
