Courtesy of ZDNET see the following:

NOIE warned that a range of new issues had arisen -- and some old barriers had re-emerged in new forms -- that could prevent the strong performance of the last five years from continuing. It said barriers have emerged: 
In the underdeveloped markets for new infrastructures needed to support sophisticated transactions; 
In strategic government participation in ICT investment and in information markets; 
In the business environment for innovation and the productive application of ICT; 
In the security and robustness of key infrastructures; 
In the frameworks that promote trust in online service provision; 
In the capabilities of communities, organisations and individuals to participate in the information economy. 
It is for this reason the NOIE is developing a New Strategic Framework for the Information Economy, and is seeking submissions to the paper by August 15. The framework will address structural and other barriers to the productive and secure use of ICT. 

The NOIE said the government as having three roles in managing Australia's transition to the information economy -- an economy where information and knowledge are intensively used to enrich commercial and social relationships. The roles of the government are viewed as: 
Remove barriers and promote the infrastructure and institutional environment needed to support information economy development. 
Set an example to be followed, and use new technology to achieve substantial improvements in citizen access, efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery. 
Ensure that particular sectors, groups and regions of Australia are not left behind. 

Auda better get its self together or it will lose its seperate identity.  I note "NOIE is developing a New Strategic Framework for the Information Economy, and is seeking submissions to the paper by August 15".

I will be drafting submissions on the strategic framework.  I would seek input from interested parties with constructive proposals and are more than happy to credit the source of any proposal.
