Section 1 & 2 (Purpose) - discussion
I'm going to start picking through my notes that I made after reading over the NZGOAL-SE.
In this section:
1) Some of the bullet points I think could be merged and made more concise.
2) The intro mentions that Government agencies "often own the copyright in the software ... that is developed for them" - I'd like to get an idea from industry how often in practice this is contracted out of.
3) I think it's good to tie the policy to the NZ Govt ICT Strategy (Section 1f) out of the GCIO office (I write about this in a research paper I put together last year), perhaps though we don't tie the exact dates as mentioned in the draft as this would quickly date the NZGOAL-SE policy as the ICT strategy gets revised (and it's good that strategies do get revised!).
Other than those points for me I'm generally happy with it.
Any other comments (generally or on my feedback)?
