The New South Wales (NSW) Greenhouse Gas Reduction Scheme (GGAS) commenced on 1 January 2003 and was one of the first mandatory greenhouse gas emissions trading schemes in the world.
The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) engaged NT Solutions to replace their current Greenhouse Administrative Workflow System (GAWS), originally on IBM Lotus Notes and TRIM Context with a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS),
Microsoft Office InfoPath and .NET 3.0 Workflow system in order to automate the issuing, tracking and maintaining certificates to electricity retailers in NSW, to be compliant with the greenhouse gas reduction targets in NSW. On top of MOSS and SQL, NT Solutions
utilized the .NET Framework version 3.0 Workflow Foundation Services for the implementation of the workflows, InfoPath 2003 for the forms generation, Microsoft Office 2003 for the document generation and Microsoft Forms Services for the rendering of the forms
for the web.
The benefits which IPART have realised are:
- Complete automation of the internal processes at Greenhouse Gas to ensure consistency and compliance
- Complete integration between GAWS and TRIM Context where the documents are stored
- Simplify human flows and reduce overheads involved in document generation, task tracking and forms processing
- Simplify orientation and training for Greenhouse Gas future staff
The solution has provided IPART with an innovative way to deliver their services placing them at the forefront of Government regulatory bodies.
