AGIMO is revising the Australian Web Publishing Guide:

They are asking public servants to take part in a focus group session 
about the new draft:

I attended a previous focus group session which was entertaining, but a 
bit too much like an episode from the ABC TV comedy "The Hollowmen":


Hopefully AGIMO will also be asking people who are not public servants 
about how government web sites should be designed, as the web sites are 
in many cases designed by external contractors and most of the web sites 
being designed are for the public, not the public servants.

ps: I am not a public servant, but I teach web design to about 80
people each year, many of whom design web sites for the government:
