Clean Energy Regulator

Intranet Project & Managed Support Service

The Clean Energy Regulator is the Government body responsible for administering legislation that will reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of clean energy. Established in 2012, the Canberra-based agency’s strategic purpose is to accelerate carbon abatement for Australia. Everything they do is connected to measuring, managing, reducing or offsetting Australia’s carbon emissions.

Solution Collective’s appreciation and awareness of SharePoint and how to get the most out of it is superb! Their solutions are thoughtful, considered and appropriate for the users and the business. They are a delight to work with at all times.

Business objective

In August 2016 CER went to market for a new SharePoint Intranet, to be called REGi – and our tender response won against a field of over 20 other companies, ranging from small boutiques, right up to global tech giants.

The Journey

The 6-month project began in late November 2016, and go-live of the new Intranet took place in May 2017. Despite incredibly tight timelines, the project was delivered both on time, and on budget.

Subsequent to project delivery, CER engaged The Solution Collective to provide a SharePoint Managed Development and Support service – which includes 3rd level platform and support capability, plus ongoing feature development again using a Sprint based development methodology.

SOCO Solution

Activities were grouped into 3 main phases, as per our Discover, Design, Deliver framework:

  • Discovery – requirements capture at a grassroots level through stakeholder workshops and interviews, such that the project had buy-in from across the business.
  • Design – architecture and design of a modern responsive Intranet that mapped features back to business value for traceability.
  • Delivery – Installation of a new SharePoint 2016 Intranet farm, and extensive custom development to meet project requirements. Custom development took place using an Agile sprint methodology.
Outcome

CER now have a modern Intranet that delivers fresh targeted content, operates as an effective communication tool, and incorporates the principals of usability, accessibility, and intuitive navigation at its core.

CER have a mature and performant SharePoint environment which can be leveraged for future ECM requirements

The project was delivered on time and on budget, at a time when SharePoint 2016 projects in Canberra were failing to do so.

CER now have a trusted support partner to ensure all the agency’s SharePoint instances are well maintained, and well supported – such that the platforms (Intranet, and Public Site) can evolve and adapt to changing needs within the agency.
