We have been writing to a number of key people like yourself to propose ways of increasing employment opportunities for Graduates and non-graduates

Are you the appropriate contact for “Information and Communication Technology [ICT]” Projects within the University of Technology Sydney [UTS] ?

In 2002 UTS was the host sponsor for a number of OIC education seminars to do with the New South Wales State Government tender for an On-line Local Government System that was to utilise XML applications

C 10 Dec 2002 LZIG - UTS - Response to Questions to "Local-e" Tenders
B 22 Nov 2002 XZIG - UTS - Central Host or Networked Local Government Systems
A 12 Nov 2002 XZIG - UTS - NSW "Local-e" Tender

The OIC submission to this tender was based on a very successful 2001 contract between the OIC and the Federal Government Department of Employment, Workplace Relations and Small Business [DEWRSB] to conduct a series of On-line Surveys with 173 NSW Councils demonstrating the importance of understanding and implementing XML [eXtensible Markup Language] applications for On-line Business

In 2000 the Federal Government had become a member of the OIC to further the knowledge and implementation of XML On-line Applications as OIC members had developed an XML Application called Tender Information Management Services [TIMS] which provided Market Intelligence analysis of Tenders

In 2003 a Consortium including US companies IBM, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems and SAP as well as Australian Companies Red Wahoo and TEDIS had received an Aus Federal Government Grant to develop a B2B XML Invoicing system called BizDex for the Australian Wheat Board [AWB] for its Grain exports to Countries like Iraq

However during 2006 an evaluation of the Australian Government On-line Tendering process using the Australian XML On-line “Name & Address” Standard [AS4590] owned by Red Wahoo it was discovered that the software house Red Wahoo engaged by the Government Body had developed both a “simple address” and a “complex address” format in the same Standard {Ref Organisation for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards [OASIS] International Conference in Sydney Oct 2006}

It transpires that, as it was an International Conference, the United Nations XML standard [EDIFACT] was also investigated and that also had a “simple address” and a “complex address” format in the same Standard !

On 22 Dec 2006 attendees at the Seminar resolved the issue on with a proposal that the Complex Address version should always be used for all eBusiness On-line Applications particularly as a number of Climate Change Carbon Credits web-pages used the simple address version in 2008-2012

Subsequently the conference Legal Sub-committee proposed that the format of the Uniform Civil Procedures Rules [UCPR] 2005 (NSW) should be used as the standard format for all eBusiness applications particularly for those involved with Local Government


A considerable number of ICT projects have been identified in a number of industries which we would like to share with the appropriate UTS contact

If it is not yourself please advise who we should contact. Thank you

Yours sincerely
