The terms of reference for the review, first reported by the AustralianIT, are expected to be published this week. The budget for the review is $97,500, according to Adam Young, spokesperson for the NSW Department of Technology and Administration.

Cabinet will get the final report of the review before it's released publicly, Young said.

The People First IT efficiency program, unveiled in 2006, was expected to cut the costs of state government information technology via coordinated procurement and planning. It promised $565 million in savings over four years.

The project was halted temporarily in 2007, recommencing with the appointment of Emmanuel Rodriguez as the NSW Government's chief information officer.
