The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) is to implement a new information architecture for its deewr.gov.au website in preparation for what is understood to be a range of new employment services under the Federal Government’s Job Services Australia program.
Introduced on 1 July 2009, Job Services Australia, at a cost of $4.9 billion over the next three years, replaces the previous employment service, Job Network, and provides one-on-one assistance and tailored employment services.
In tender documents, DEEWR said it was currently seeking providers of data migration and formatting services to produce an information architecture for the inclusion of employment information into the deewr.gov.au website to “ensure content is accessible and efficient for all users”.
“From the results of the analysis and research the information architecture will be designed to fit within the Department's existing framework and design and will provide a customised and consistent user experience alongside all portfolio information currently available,” the documents read.
“[The service provider] will provide data migration services to transfer the identified content into the required web presence within SharePoint Technology, ie. the migration of major program, services and portals as identified by the Department."
