The Victorian Government has publicly released its Y2K state of readiness, in accordance with a national agreement reached last year.
The information, available from the Government's Web site, paints a picture of the state of play within the key supply sectors over which the Government has jurisdiction.
The move was welcomed by Senator Richard Alston, and follows the release last week by South Australia of its Y2K compliance update. The public report provides information on Victorian portfolios, local authorities and agencies, with the files available in a downloadable format.
Also available is information on key sectors including electricity, gas and water, designed to reassure Victorian residents, and hopefully encourage private sector reporting.
"South Australia has passed mirror legislation and Victoria has introduced its mirror legislation to Parliament. The Commonwealth looks forward to the passage of legislation in the other States, and urges all State and territory Governments to take a lead from Victoria and South Australia in providing detailed Y2K compliance information to their residents," said Senator Alston.
