Aus-USA-FTA-opporunity to implement ISO Standards

Hi - as many of you may be aware the Australia-USA Free Trade
Agreement [Aus-USA-FTA] has been passed by the USA House
of Representatives and Senate and just requires the Australian
Senate to pass it probably on 12 Aug 2004.

One of the key opportunities in the FTA for Australia is access to
the $ 200 Billion Federal Government and $ 200 Billion State Government
Procurement Contracts

Here is a link to the various Government speakers at the 2nd Reading
of the bill on Wed 23 Jun which provides the details of the Agreement.

The OIC XML & E-commerce Special Interest Group [XZIG] has been
in existance since 2000

XZIG is one of the very few organisations that made a submission on 
to the Aus-USA-FTA Chapter 16: Electronic Commerce and Chapter 
17: Intellectual Property

We have been working on implementing ISO Standards for Electronic
Tenders for Government Procurement and using ISO 8601 

There are 27 US  States that have signed the FTA and all 6 Australian 
States and 2 Territories. Here are the capital cities for those States

We would like to start establishing contact with people in those States
and cities that are identified, with a view of working together either
on implementing an e-Contracts System or responding to local
tenders together using ISO Standards.


If this is of interest please send me an e-mail.  A link to your
web-site would also be appreciated.
