							Y/R: AS 4590
TO: 	Trevor PYMAN			cc	EasyBiz Councils
	Project Manager - Easybiz		Members of Parliament
	SINCLAIR KNIGHT MERZ

Trevor - further to my recent emails to the Easybiz members and 
SKM on the two XML Address formats within AS 4590 this email is
to ask you to confirm what advice you are giving to the Council
Members and the Company awarded the Council Integration project
on which XML Address format to use.

I have proposed to Philip ARGY President of the Australian Computer
Society a time-table to confirm a single XML Address format during
Dec 2006

In the meantime 

> As the Victorian 32 Local Government Consortium has a very 
> clearly defined timetable I am proposing that, as an interim step, 
> the Sinclair Knight Merz [SKM] Consultant for that project advise 
> the Councils and whoever was awarded the Contract, that the 
> Complex Address of AS 4590 is always used for all transactions 

NEXT STEPS

Please confirm 

1	if you are prepared to advise involved EasyBiz Parties to use the
	Complex AS 4590 XML Address version as an interim step

2	if you would be able to participate in the proposed eCommittee
	to define a single XML Address format 

Thank you

regards

Dear Chairman 

This email is to explain there will be a permanent on-going costs for 
Councils involved with the EasyBiz Vendor Integration project as the 
XML Structure is currently defined.

A	AS4590 Address format ambiguous
B	Legislation may be required
C	Next Steps

A	AS4590 ADDRESS FORMAT AMBIGUOUS

Although the Specification includes reference to AS4590 the format 
of the Property Contact details is not in AS4590 format.

There are 2 main areas where AS4590 is not followed:

1	The Address format of the Property Details

2	The Telephone and Fax format of the Property and 
	Contact Details

The objectives of the Tender and the details of those flaws in the
AS4590 Vendor Integration can be reviewed here

This will provide a long-term on-going cost for Councils and
also a perptual cost for Home and Small businesses that 
wish to link electronically to other Government Enterprises that
use AS4590.

In addition AS4590 suffers from the same problem as UN/EDIFACT
the International Standard in that the address details are ambiguous
	
This has led to the many problems surrounding the rapid acceptance 
and implementation of eCommerce.

LEGISLATION MAY BE REQUIRED

As I have said before, at times the CIT Industry is grossly irresponsible 
and ignores its Social Obligations in the pursuit of long term revenue

This is a very important issue as EasyBiz and BizDex objectives are
to develop an application that all Councils will adopt.

Possibly Australia has to consider Legislation similar to the Law
that the US Federal Government passed in 1996 to ensure all US 
Government Agencies used ANSI-X12

NEXT STEPS

Please confirm if EasyBiz is to adopt:

1	the Complex Address from of AS4590 for all Contact Addresses

2	The telephone and fax structure of AS4590 for all communications

Your members may wish to attend the OASIS XML Open Standard
Conference on 25-27 Oct to understand more of the issues involved
with providing effective Council On-line Services.

The OIC has negotiated a special fee for Local Government Agencies to 
attend this Conference

Yours faithfully
