ATO-SwD end to end interaction tool

The ATO-SwD end to end interaction tool (PDF, 800kB) is a tool for defining ownership, commitments, and processes for ATO staff in performing activities that support the entire software developer life cycle.

The purpose of the tool is to drive consistency of activities and behaviours in supporting the principles of the ATO-SwD Framework to deliver the desired experiences of the R-ATO blueprint.
