THE TASK

 

The Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission was established by the South Australian Government on Thursday, 19 March 2015 to undertake an independent and comprehensive investigation into South Australia’s participation in four areas of activity that form part of the nuclear fuel cycle. The Digital Embassy was commissioned by the Attorney General’s Department to develop a responsive website to allows all interested persons with an opportunity to provide information and evidence that will help guide the Royal Commission in its decision making and formulation of the final report.

The Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission website would act as a single point of reference for stakeholder engagement. Features that needed to be considered included social feeds, blogs, online submissions, mailing list subscriptions, key date information and various reference papers from latest news to issues papers.

Further stages post deployment included the need to facilitate two-way communication with the commission’s own database and reference library for ease of document sharing as well as multiple video archives and live streaming of commission events.

 

OUR APPROACH & RESULTS

Designed using the Wordpress platform, the website’s CMS is easy to use for the multiple users at the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission. A combination of template pages and custom built functionality has given the client the flexibility to display the required information in a format that meets their design requirements whilst also keeping costs to a tight budget.

Large images and simple links to associated PDFs give the user clear direction to navigate through the site, finding the information they require.

Utilising a staged approach, the initial site was launched in conjunction with a media call and announcement facilitating instant access to the website by the alerted media.  Further post deployment stages were immediately put into development and as they became available, were deployed to the live site. These features included live streaming, reporting and commenting, submissions and archived video features.
