Sir Peter Gershon who is leading the independent review of the Government use and management of ICT, is in Canberra this week. By all accounts, he has a packed schedule of meetings with heads of key agencies and industry representatives, as well as with the Review Secretariat within AGIMO. Board members of the AIIA are due to meet with Sir Peter on Wednesday.
This is Sir Peter's first visit (he's based in the UK) since he was in Australia for the launch in April of the wide-ranging review of the Federal Government's use of IT.
In Canberra this week, Sir Peter is meeting with the heads of key agencies but he won't have the benefit of a survey of agencies that is not due to be completed until mid-July. Suppliers were invited to make submissions to the Gershon Review by the end of May, and associations by 13 June. Sir Peter is due to report to the Minister, Lindsay Tanner, at the end of August.
