OPC was delighted to be selected to redevelop the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia’s website - www.gg.gov.au

With the appointment of the new Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) on the 1st of July 2019, the Office of the Official Secretary to the Governor-General sought the development and design of a new website based on the GovCMS 8 distribution and standard templates.

Due to a tight deadline the Office decided to engage a supplier with extensive GovCMS 8 experience to develop the website on the new platform and associated distribution. OPC was chosen as the preferred supplier for this prestigious project.

OPC values the lengthy association with the Governor-General’s IT team, dating back to 2002. More recent projects include the development of the GG’s Drupal 8 intranet and developing the previous Governor-General’s website when General Sir Peter John Cosgrove, AK, CVO, MC was appointed in 2014.

The new Governor-General’s website utilises the GovCMS 8 UI-Kit to help deliver a modern, clean, responsive website befitting the status of the Office.

The development, forklift and launch of the site from start to finish was a total of 4 weeks.
