Greetings from the completion ceremony for the eGovernment capacity
building through knowledge transfer in Bangladesh project (PSLP eGov),
being held at the Australian National University in Canberra:

Present are the Bangladesh High Commissioner to Australia, other
dignitaries of the ICT community including AGIMO, NICTA, Professor
Gregor who oversaw the project and Ahmed Imran who did much of the work.
The project involved preparing training materiel for Bangladesh
government officials and conducting training forums. One of the more
useful output is the "ICT Management Handbook: A Guide for Government
officers in Bangladesh". The handbook is based on AGIMO's handbook for
the Australian Public Service. There are other items from the course
available on the web: <http://www.ictforldc.com/PSLP/handbook.htm>.

It is likely that the program will be expanded to other developing
nations through AusAid. Also later versions may include a component on
sustainability from my ANU Green ICT course. Mor on this in my blog at:
