The Federal Government is seeking tenders for the creation of an online 'service pack' for development applications.
Parliamentary secretary to the IT Minister, Senator Ian Campbell, said the land development applications project is part of the Trials of Innovative Government Electronic Regional Services (TIGERS), which is aimed at making it easier to transact online with commonwealth, state and local governments at a single point.
"Applying to develop a property can be challenging, and involves understanding development rules set by three levels of government, which makes it ideal for the development of a TIGERS service pack," Campbell said.
"Once developed, the service pack will lead customers through all the steps to prepare and lodge their land development applications. It will contain legislation, information and services about Commonwealth heritage and environment requirements, State land titles information, and local council planning rules."
The TIGERS service pack will trial innovative ways of delivering cross-jurisdictional, integrated online government services to customers and demonstrate approaches and technologies that can be adopted by other local and state governments, Campbell said.
The request for tenders is available online from the Commonwealth Electronic Tender Service at www.tenders.gov.au.
