How will the ACH Information System project work?
The project will have several distinct phases:
Phase 1 – Discovery
The discovery phase will focus on building a better understanding of the problems associated with managing cultural data, engaging with
users in the Aboriginal Community and developing insights.
Phase 2 – Development
Aboriginal Affairs NSW will engage technical experts to help build solutions into the ACH Information System based on feedback from
stakeholders and also to test it with you. This is called an 'agile' methodology - where we try, test and learn in order to develop digital
Between the phases of work, we will come back to the communities working on the project to test what has been developed and seek your advice
on whether the system meets your needs.
Phase 3 – Assessment and Future Planning
In March 2023, Aboriginal Affairs NSW will report on the findings of the project and what the next steps will be in the development of
the new system.
This will enable development to move to the next stage once the problem and the solutions are fully understood.
