The Common Web Platform (CWP) is a Platform as a Service offering New Zealand Government websites. SilverStripe Ltd is under contract to the Department of Internal Affairs to provide the platform. CWP was launched in September 2013.
The Common Web Platform includes:

  • A managed hosting infrastructure jointly provided by Revera and SilverStripe, including backups and disaster recovery
  • SilverStripe CMS, tailored and enhanced for NZ Government use
    Templates and supported modules to quickly build websites
  • The facility for agencies and their suppliers to fully customise website design and features, and CMS functionality
  • A source code management and sharing platform
  • A commercial service solution including online management portal, helpdesk, professional services, code reviews, software updates, and service levels.

SilverStripe is the top choice for councils in New Zealand as many free open source modules are already available to extend the SilverStripe CMS to suit your own council’s website. The flexible SilverStripe Framework connects to third parties to enable online payment of rates, infringements, consents.
