DevCAP© (Development Contributions Accounting Program) is a holistic, automated program which combines each aspect of administering and implementing development contributions into one simple, user-friendly interface.
Originally designed for Development Contributions Plans (DCPs), DevCAP© can be used to manage a variety of mechanisms used to collect developer contributions. In Victoria these include voluntary agreements and the proposed Standard Levies (Infrastructure Contributions Plans). DevCAP© can be applied to infrastructure charges and similar mechanisms in other States.
DevCAP© automates the otherwise complex calculations required to properly administer development contributions and provides a platform that integrates the various Council processes of strategic planning, statutory planning, capital works and finance.
Through the use of DevCAP©, Councils have been able to minimise financial risks, remove human error and provide certainty and transparency when dealing with developers. In doing so, DevCAP© has helped to ensure that vital public infrastructure is provided to new communities in a timely manner and in accordance with the planning principles which underpin development contributions.
