The Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) is the Australian Government agency responsible for managing Australia's overseas aid program. AusAID is an Executive Agency within the Foreign Affairs and Trade portfolio and reports to the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
The Australian Development Gateway (ADG) website, a World Bank funded initiative, was created in 2004 to make Australian research by Australian institutions more accessible to developing economies and to ensure Australia was aware of the Government's aid plans. The main objectives of this AusAID digital initiative were to provide relevant and quality information and knowledge, and facilitate sharing of information among its members.
Post tender submissions, NRC was awarded the AusAID contract for ADG Phases I, II III and IV, solution design, implementation, content management and support.
