The NT government has settled on two IT partners to deliver its planned $64 million integrated child protection case management system following an extensive two-year procurement.
The government on Wednesday said that UK-based software provider Liquidlogic, which specialises in case management systems for social care, and local IT firm SRA had been selected for the project.
The new case management and data exchange solution, to be known as the ‘Care’ system, will replace the territory’s existing community care information system (CCIS), which will reach end-of-life in December 2021.
The Department of Corporate and Digital Development (DCDD) is leading the project, formally known as the client management system alignment (CMSA) program, on behalf of Territory Families.
DCDD (then the Department of Corporate and Information Services) went looking for a new system in 2018 in response to the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the NT.
