About

The Biosecurity Portal (BSP) is a jointly funded initiative between the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) and Plant Health Australia (PHA) to provide a centralised repository and gateway to online biosecurity information for collaboration and sharing. In essence, the BSP aims to strengthen Australia’s biosecurity research, surveillance, diagnostic and response capability, by enabling researchers, industry and governments, to collaborate, use expertise, share data, information, and generate intelligence using leading edge tools and technologies made available through the BSP’s online workspaces.

At the completion of the department’s development funding for the Biosecurity Portal there will be a self-supporting operational system (including hardware, software and maintenance) that can be marketed to researchers, industry and governments that delivers against its core purposes.

  • Collaborative workspaces and knowledge bases
  • Advanced workflow automation
  • Low cost web hosting services
  • Centralised information repositories and sharing

National Biosecurity Response Team

The National Biosecurity Response Team (NBRT) is a group of skilled and trained government personnel with experience in responding to biosecurity incidents. The NBRT program provides professional development and response/exercise opportunities that build on the training provided by the member’s organisation, in order to provide a pool of individuals with relevant expertise that can be deployed in response to an animal, plant, aquatic or environmental biosecurity incident.

There are two cohorts within the NBRT – the incident management team functional cohort and mentors – that cover the functions under a State Coordination Centre or Local Control Centre. Current membership is drawn from the national and all state/territory governments in Australia.

This NBRT members’ site will act as a repository for relevant documents and articles, and as a platform for NBRT-related discussions and queries.
