Sustainability in Australian Government ICT Procurement

Greetings from the ACS Canberra 2009 Conference at the National Convention centre in Canberra. Lindsay Tanner, the Minister for Finance and Deregulation and the Government's number one blogger, is giving the keynote address. The theme of the talk is reform of government computer and telecommunications. Whole of Government ICT Sustainability plan with Department of Environment and AGIMO. The intent is to have mandatory standards and government energy targets with reporting and audit to manage the government's carbon footprint and lead by example. The Gershon Report found that a lack of a data centre strategy would cost $1B over the next few years. The data centre strategy will include sustainability. I am talking on Green ICT at 11:15am.
