Australia’s Drupal procurement: you’ll never guess who won

From the ‘tying up loose ends’ department… I mentioned a while back that the Australian government was procuring Drupal services for the development of a government-wide (and non-mandatory) content management system.

The winning bidder was announced last week. And guess who it was? Acquia. Would you believe it? Contract details will be published online within 6 weeks, if you’re curious. The platform will be ‘broadly available to Commonwealth Government entities from February 2015’.
