A Quantum “LEAP” for Nova

The Legislation and Law Reform Division of the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) is the legislative drafting office of Singapore, and is responsible for the drafting and vetting of all Singapore legislation.

AGC awarded novaCITYNETS, a subsidiary of Nova MSC a contract to implement and commission the Legislation Editing and Authentic Publishing(LEAP) system on 24 September 2008.

The LEAP system is an initiative proposed under AGC’s 3-year IT Plan to help generate significant efficiency gains through the effective and efficient management of the legislation lifecycle from drafting to publishing. The LEAP system will also bring about the new outcomes of authentic legislation and multiple delivery channels for legislation.

The LEAP system, when fully implemented, will be a platform for knowledge sharing by storing legislation semantically, while providing an interface for syndication and pinpoint cross-referencing. Intuitive and efficient search and retrieval of information will also be extended under LEAP.

LEAP is the 2nd contract that AGC has awarded to novaCITYNETS this year. In January 2008, Nova was awarded a contract to implement an organization-wide Enterprise Legal Management System (ELMS). The introduction of LEAP will also see seamless integration with ELMS, providing an integrated platform for legislation drafting and approval.

The implementation for the LEAP system is a strategic collaboration between novaCITYNETS, SAIC Pty Ltd and xEdge Consultancy Pte Ltd.
