Development and public works
SA eTenders provides easy access to all publicly available
bidding opportunities, visibility to awarded contracts, ability
to sort tenders by different fields, one-touch quick search
capabilities, the ability to provide quick access to tenders
flagged for watching, and the ability to set and receive alerts
for specific tenders either new or watched from the South
Australian Government Tenders and Contracts website.
The DA Finder app enables users to view and link to current
development application notifications (and other notifications)
in the Australian Capital Territory. In addition, users can receive
an alert when a notification is publicly available in their specified
area/s. Once selected, users can then view the notification via the
Environment and Sustainable Development Directorates website
and respond through the existing feedback channels.
Reporting an issue
The City of Sydney's Report an issue app is committed to
maintaining a clean and safe community. If community
members observe instances of illegal dumping, graffiti,
abandoned vehicles, trees on city property requiring
maintenance, footpath or trip hazards, or any other issues that
impact the community, they can report it using this app.
Community members who are fed up with seeing graffiti on
the walls, or driving over potholes, can report it to their council
using My Council Services app. This application works for every
council in Australia. Your report is sent directly to the council
where the incident is located, and the issues are then resolved
by your council.
NeatStreets is a highly effective way for a member of the
community to notify authorities of obstructions, faults, or damage
to asset infrastructure anywhere across the country, and to be
kept informed of progress in-app. The app allows users to report
problems showing photographic evidence, adding a comment,
and confirming a validated location -- all in under 30 seconds.
FeralScan is a community website and smart phone app
that allows citizens to map sightings of pest animals and record
the problems they are causing in a local area. FeralScan can
be used by farmers, community groups, pest controllers, local
government, catchment groups and individuals managing pest
animals and their impacts.
Go2Guides is a national app designed to inform residents and
visitors about important events, attractions and announcements
in a region. The main aim of the app is to promote local
businesses and places of interest, which will benefit the
development of towns and regions.
The My Local Services app offers interactive access to
council services and information across South Australia. It allows
councils to direct-message ratepayers and inform residents
about local news, events and issues.
Stop Here uses the location of a smart device to provide
push alerts to let passengers know when their public transport
stop is approaching. It can be used in addition to other
announcements that may already be provided by your public
transport operator, it has been developed to assist vision-
and hearing-impaired customers, and it is endorsed by the
Australasian Railway Association.
GovJobs.com.au is Australia's government job website, and is the
single premier source for all jobs in the Australian public service
industry. GovJobs is now available as an iPad app that allows
you to search, sort and apply for jobs at all levels of government.
Have you ever thought your local area could be run better? Run
That Town is a strategy game with a twist -- it lets the player take
control of any neighbourhood in Australia. The user accesses
real Census data to discover who's who in the area, and to make
decisions that will sway popular opinion in their favour. What
kind of leader will you be? Will you be showered with praise, or
chased out of town by an angry mob?
Water is scarce and needs to be shared around. Using the
Run the River! app, you must run the river to deliver bubbles of
water from the river to the wetlands, farms and communities,
while keeping the river mouth connected to the ocean.
Control the dam releases to quench the thirst of all your
water consumers through the challenges of flood, drought,
evaporation, seasonal changes, salinity, water table rise and
increased water demand.
