in brief The Department of Finance and Deregulation has confirmed that it has received the review into the government's implementation of the recommendations made in Sir Peter Gershon's report on government information technology.

In March this year, the government brought in former Sydney Olympics CIO and former National E-Health Transition Authority CEO Dr Ian Reinecke to review the implementation of recommendations from Gershon and to assess what the role of the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) will be after the ICT reform program had been completed.

In a statement today the Department of Finance and Deregulation confirmed to ZDNet Australia that Reinecke had submitted his report to the government.

"The government has received the report from Dr Ian Reinecke and will now consider its contents," the statement said.

The department said the contents of the report were not being made public at this stage.
