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 Plant Biosecurity RD&E Strategy Implementation Committee

​The purpose of the National Plant Biosecurity RD&E Strategy Implementation Committee is to provide strategic oversight and direction for implementation of the National Plant Biosecurity RD&E Strategy. Implementation of the Strategy will involve setting up the structures and process by which the biosecurity sector will develop, implement and evaluate Australia's long-term strategic cross-sector plant biosecurity RD&E needs and priorities, promote and facilitate collaboration and monitor Australia's RD&E capability. This will ensure Australia's RD&E capacities are aligned nationally with future industry and community needs, facilitate collaboration that strengthens Australia's position internationally and ensure that RD&E delivery is both efficient and effective.
