GovTEAMS is now in open beta

We are pleased to announce that the open beta release of GovTEAMS is now available for Commonwealth Government employees to sign up, at We are finally lifting the curtains and revealing our product to you, so that you can use and evaluate the service for us. Using your feedback, we will continue to add new features and content to make the next release of GovTEAMS even better.

Working closely with a number of government agencies, we have designed a service to not only replace the ageing GovDEX platform, but to transform the way we work together.

GovDEX members have until March 2019 to migrate their content and create new communities in GovTEAMS, after this date GovDEX will no longer be available for use. Detailed instructions relating to migration will be sent to GovDEX administrators in mid-September.
