Crisis IT system no closer

CD Crisis IT system no closer

"The newly-appointed head of the Civil Defence Ministry, John Hamilton, says no progress has been made toward implementing a National Crisis Management System since a tender was cancelled in December 2004.

Civil Defence first went shopping for an IT system to help it handle national emergencies in 2002 and selected a multimillion-dollar system tendered by US software firm E-Team and Unisys in 2003 as its preferred solution, but was unable to conclude a contract."
