In 2006 RAD developed a Contract Management System (HIMS) for the Hawkesbury Nepean Catchment Management Authority based on the Oracle platform. 

With its integration to SAP and the GIS system, HIMS has gained widespread use all over NSW and is now used by 9 Catchments around the state in over 30 regionally dispersed offices.

The system continues to be enhanced and underwent a name change in 2008 to CIMS (Catchment Information Management System).

Below are links to publicly available documentation on the use of CIMS by the Catchments:
