Australian Government Architecture


GovTEAMS is the collaboration service for the Australian Public Service. GovTEAMS PROTECTED offers a range of exciting features and apps, allowing government employees and their industry partners to connect, share information and work together across organisational and geographical boundaries.

GovTEAMS PROTECTED is a secure environment, designed specifically for hosting sensitive content, and supports the sharing of information that has been classified as PROTECTED.


  • collaborate and connect with members in a PROTECTED environment – locally, nationally, and internationally – using Microsoft Office 365
  • work on projects in a secure environment (up to PROTECTED)
  • video, phone, chat, send posts and collaborate with project partners, in real time
  • share documents securely without worrying about version control
  • host online meetings, live events, and webinars
  • connect with communities with similar goals or projects
  • work efficiently, saving time and money.

To collaborate in GovTEAMS PROTECTED, you must have a membership. To become a member, an active baseline clearance is required.

Membership Types:

  • Full Access Memberships – for APS employees. Self-register here.
  • External Memberships – for non-APS employees. External members need to be invited by a full access member.
