IP Australia’s vision is to have a world leading IP system that builds prosperity for Australia. One of the ways the agency is working to achieve this is through delivering efficient IP rights administration via its Transactional Digital Services (TDS) Program.
IP Australia understood that in order to realise its vision to enable world-leading IP digital service delivery, it would need to focus on providing modern, easy to use, efficient and effective services.
In 2016, IP Australia’s Business Investment Committee provided in principle approval for an initial business case for the TDS Program to redevelop its systems, utilising an API led approach. This initial business case contained a set of options and outlined benefits, including high-level costings.
