“Specific interval reviews of deliverables and milestones are essential, as outlined, and it will be equally important that the funding base to reach targets is maintained.

“ITANZ will advance specific initiatives from time to time to assist the government’s progress An example is the private finance initiative which was promoted to accelerate progress in e-government and e-commerce and to help remove risk from govt development in both of these areas.
