Improving Government Services with IT

Criticisms aside, i find it absolutely hillarious that your glorious
website reference does not contain any of the stuff we have done in
Australia, whether for te JCPAA or DIST or even a reference to us.
Ming you Brian, this is consistent with the level of knowledge and
competence which surrounds most activities i have had the pleasure of
witnessing from far. Asseem may have taken the wrong approach but
he certainly was not wrong in his overall assessment. Research from
Egypt, Singapore and Malaysia but nothing from our $2 million spent
developing original research in Australia last year? Keep up the good
work guys :-)
Just because we don't rely on handouts from DoCA/NOIE/DoCITA/BlaBla
does not mean we dont exist - and your obvious exclusion of the 38
people working at www.consult is a condemnation of how much of this
stuff is show and how much is real.
