as much as I would like to say WM-Au could put up it's hand to bid for this tender, I do not believe we have the capacity to do so. The project is worth $40k and must be delivered by October. I do believe we should assist if possible (e.g. provide a briefing paper or advice?) but I for one do not have the time or expertise to manage such a project nor do I think WM-Au has the requisite level of maturity to bid for tenders or publicly-listed grants in general (at least, not yet).
Nevertheless, I do agree with you that the Gov2.0 taskforce and these tenders (especially number 1,4 and 6) will greatly assist in our work as Free Culuture advocates in Australia.
