The concept of branding and promoting the empty space around Brisbane's port and airport, following many years of Government reports and soul-searching on what might be done with the "Brisbane Gateway Ports Area", was first proposed to then Queensland Premier Peter Beattie by a 3PR marketing consultant who had developed Amsterdam Airport Area for Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport. Beattie took up the idea with enthusiasm, so a partnership was formed between the Queensland Government, Brisbane City Council, Brisbane Airport and the Port of Brisbane to drive the project forward. The brand and organisational details were announced at a press conference at Brisbane Airport in May 1999. Australia TradeCoast is expected to release and develop 1,300 hectares (3,200 acres) of land by 2026. In 2014 there were 32 industry precincts.

Can Winston Churchill’s grandson save Serco? And is it worth saving?

For three decades it grew in the borderlands between the state and society, the government and us. Its name stands for “service company” and Serco, which combined great ambition with a desire to be unseen, wanted to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. It was as much a formula as a company: a way to implement outsourced public services on behalf of governments, but with the elan of a restless entrepreneur.

It didn’t matter what the service was, where it had to happen, or to whom it was delivered. Serco started out operating radars in Yorkshire and traffic lights in London, but it came to work with schoolchildren and doctors, commuters and prisoners, pilots and refugees. NSW budget 2015: $2.5bn surplus delivered in 'a time of building' The New South Wales government has delivered a $2.5bn surplus, although the bulk of it was achieved by changing the way it lists some of its transport spending.

The treasurer, Gladys Berejiklian, announced the surplus in her first budget on Tuesday, saying the government had overcome “a bloated bureaucracy and an unsustainable budget” to deliver the result. The underlying surplus is $713m, with the headline figure achieved by establishing the transport asset holding entity (Tahe), a commercial, public, non-financial organisation which allows the government to list part of its transport budget as a direct equity injection rather than a cost.

The Victorian and Queensland governments use a similar system. Japan post purchasing toll australia. State Library of New South Wales.

Tony Abbott has given communications minister Malcolm Turnbull sole responsibility for a “digital transformation office” to build on the existing myGov service, including the possibility of extending it to state and local government transactions. The move clarifies who is responsible for a service now part-run by the Department of Finance. One of the office’s first jobs would be to allow people to create a single “digital identity” and login for all government services.

“Almost all transactions with the federal government can be completed entirely digitally,” Turnbull told Guardian Australia. America’s Tech Guru Steps Down—But He’s Not Done Rebooting the Government.

Chief Minister Adam Giles made the announcement at the opening of the latest section of Tiger Brennan Drive this morning. When asked if there were plans to ease traffic congestion in and out of the city during peak times, Mr Giles said the Government would look at moving some public servants out of the CBD.

Health sector employees would move to the new Palmerston Hospital site once it was completed, he said. "We are looking at moving some public servants or public employees in the future, as leases transition out and we see greater levels of population in other areas of the Top End," Mr Giles said. The works at the city end of the Darwin-Palmerston arterial are the latest in the project's five year, $236.5 million history.

More works are scheduled to be completed in 2016. State government germany.
