The $5.588 million contract runs until March 2029. It was awarded by the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate following a public tender.

The new system will streamline DAs and help facilitate the government’s growth plans, TechnologyOne says.

More than 600 DAs were lodged to ACT Planning Between June 2023-June 2024.

The ACT government currently has a number of planning projects and priorities, including the City Plan released in 2023 which guides future growth in the City Centre. 

TechnologyOne says the new software will make the application processes faster and enable users to view progress from initial enquiry and lodgement through to verification and determination.

The contract builds on TechnologyOne’s provision of services to the capital territory. In 2019 it also signed a multi-million dollar, four-year deal to replace ACT Health Directorate’s inventory management system. That contract was not renewed.

“As a local provider competing against multi-national vendors from around the world, we have a proud history of building an advanced business information service system and take great pride in delivering the best value for money for our customers, ensuring taxpayers’ money is retained locally,” TechnologyOne CEO Ed Chung said in a statement.

The company supplies to more than 230 Federal and State Government agencies and departments across Australia and New Zealand, including the Tasmanian and Western Australian Governments.
