DTA provides details of myGov Update tender

The Digital Transformation Agency has provided details of the selection criteria for the systems integrator partner it will select to complete the myGov Update project.

As announced earlier this month, the agency has issued a request for expressions of interest for the contract, which will involve designing and delivering a parallel myGov platform named the Government Digital Experiences Platform.

According to the DTA, the project must be designed to build on existing technical platforms maintained by Services Australia.

It will likely also involve building on the new functionality being developed by the DTA to deliver myGov updates, including notification services as well as integration with the myGov Inbox API.

Sellers have been advised to respond to the request through the Digital Marketplace, and to propose hosting and software partnerships for the project. According to the DTA, only the systems integrator has to be listed on the Digital Marketplace, not any partners.

The DTA also revealed it will prioritise proposals that involve delivering a technology-agnostic, modular approach, as well as solutions capable of demonstrating high levels of availability, security and support for privacy and consent controls.

The project is meanwhile expected to be the subject of multiple Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessments from the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) at key stages of its development.
