GSG’S ICT ADVISORY SERVICES
  GSG’s Technology stream provides ICT-related advisory services to
  government departments and agencies planning to submit the ERC
  funding request for 2009-10

  GSG is able to:
     discuss specific ICT-related issues and risks relevant to the
     proposed ICT-dependent investment
     identify linkages to other ICT investments being managed and/or
     planned by other agencies
     identify ICT principles, policies and standards likely to impact on the
     proposed investment
     review draft funding submissions/business cases and related
     documents and suggest how these can be improved
     identify re-usable ICT components (approach, process, architecture,
     standards, information, applications, infrastructure) to lower
     implementation costs
     share learning from other similar ICT-related projects
     provide access to relevant reference data, information and experts

                                                                         4

GSG’S ASSESSMENT APPROACH
 Impact on Efficient Technology Services (ETS) scope i.e:
    Secured core desktop environment
    Common trusted network
    Simplified login access using a common directory
    Common hosting service

Consideration of technology alignment to business needs:
   Explicit evidence of business need exists?
   Have relevant business processes been analysed and assessed?
   Has impact on ICT infrastructure been well considered?
   Does a target-state for Enterprise Architecture and/or ICT infrastructure consistent with
   WoVG directions?
Consideration of ICT related risks:
   Are generic business case elements well covered ? i.e Scope (incl. Deliverables), Costs,
   Assumptions, Constraints, Dependencies, Schedule (incl. Milestones), Risks, Benefits
   Are “People, Process, Technologies” issues well explored?
   Is there sufficient detail included in the Business Case?
   Are the relevant acquisition, delivery/implementation and operational issues well explored?
   Is the governance model practical and well articulated?
                                                                                               6
