Export opportunities have moved to a new digital platform

30 Sep 2022

 In April 2022, Austrade changed the process to access education export opportunities published through the Market Information Package (MIP).

We changed the name from 'Opportunities' to 'Find Export Leads' and moved to a new digital platform, MyAustrade. We have also joined the Australian Government Digital Identity System to verify users.

The new export leads service will allow verified users to see export leads as soon as they’re published, submit online expressions of interest, track the progress of their submissions and view previously submitted expressions of interest, all in one place.  

Export leads will still be published in the MIP Weekly newsletter, with a link provided to access further information. To view the full details or to respond to an export lead, users will need to log in using their Digital Identity, myGovID. myGovID is an app you download to your smart device to prove who you are when accessing a range of government online services.

Once you’ve set up your Digital Identity, you need to link it to your organisation using the Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) system. This only needs to be completed once. If your organisation is already linked in RAM, have your principal authority or authorisation administrator link you to your organisation in RAM.

Detailed instructions to help you set up are on the myAustrade website.

Please note the following:

  • You will need at least two Australian identity documents to achieve a Standard identity strength, so it is a good idea to have them ready. People with Standard identity strength can be added as standard users or authorisation administrators for your organisation. Authorisation administrators can manage who should be linked to your organisation.
  • International staff who don’t have at least two Australian identity documents can now register for a Basic identity strength with a valid email address. Please note they can only be added as a Basic user in RAM.

For more information about RAM, please visit the RAM website.
