It's a pity the Australian Governments aren't following them. On ABC 
morning radio yesterday there was a discussion of some IT project 
that had been running for NINE years! The caller made the point that 
if the govt followed the standards for governance sooooo much money 
would be saved and that there had been at least 3 revolutions in IT 
during the nine year period. I was only half listening, but I think 
this was after Rob Hulls, Victoria's AG, had been possibly talking 
about a new system for the Justice dept, but I may be wrong about that.
