Online credentials

Your secure online credential to access government online services is myGovID.

When linked in Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM), myGovID identifies you to act on behalf of an agency and establishes a secure environment for online transactions.

Using myGovID and RAM to access government online services

Together, myGovID and RAM provide access to government online services that is:

  • streamlined
  • flexible
  • secure.

Link your ABN to your myGovID in RAM

A principal authority needs to link your agency in RAM before others can be authorised to access government online services on behalf of it.

For government agencies, this is an authorised contact listed against the Australian Business Number (ABN) in the Australian Business Register (ABR).

If there are multiple authorised contacts for your agency, only one needs to link the ABN in RAM.

Before you start:

  • set up your myGovID
  • check that your agency’s ABR authorised contact details are up-to-date
  • ensure each person who accesses online services on behalf of your organisation sets up a myGovID – they will need this to log in to RAM and accept an authorisation to act on behalf of your agency.

How you complete the link will depend on the circumstances of your agency. Go to Principal authority to find out what you need to do.
