Gershon report to be implemented in full
Posted by Dave Bath on 2008-11-28
A big round of applause to Lindsay Tanner, who has promised to implement in full the recommendations of the Gershon Report into Australian Government use of IT.
As regular readers will be aware, I was very happy with what was in the report, and indeed the report overall, even though I was disappointed at some things I thought missing (see "Gershon Report into Oz Gov IT: Good, but some holes").
Implementing the report could lead to huge savings in government spending, improved service levels, as well as being good for the environment.
I don’t just complain about, or to, politicians: I sent Tanner a "thankyou" note.
