Privacy agency taps open source CMS for new website

Office of the Australian Information Commissioner goes with Joomla

The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), which oversees freedom of information and privacy for the federal government, is seeking to migrate to a new website based on the open source Joomla CMS.

Up to $145,000 is on the table for managing the migration from the current flat-file setup created with Adobe Dreamweaver to a database driven site running on Joomla.

Tender documents state that the organisation is seeking migration to Joomla 2.5, though is open to moving to 1.7.5., the website of the defunct Office of the Privacy Commissioner, which was integrated into the OAIC in late 2010, is currently published using Joomla 1.5.20.

The office envisages a setup closer to than the current main OAIC site, but "must also incorporate the new functions/services that the OAIC was created to deliver", tender documents state.

The OAIC intends to sign a contract for the migration by the end of June, with tenders closing in mid-April.
