The Tender application indexing systems has been refined.  A draft copy of the proposed indexing
system is attached for review and discussion  {acpaei~1.doc}.

This indexing structure is important for Market Intelligence for members to be able to rely on 
the coding system for tender identification.  This will become increasingly important for software 
developers as State and Local Government tenders are driving e-commerce applications.

Once these applications are up and running any SME wanting to deal with Government is going to
have to modify their software to interface with the Gov Department applications.
