Check URL, not www.nicta.gov.au but nicta.net.au

http://nicta.com.au/ as well ?(

Had graduate interview with the people funding these guys ( http:// 
www.dcita.gov.au/ ), was extremely short and got distinct impression  
that a PR person was running the show not an IT. Had no clues about  
what net could do, but what net could be sold as. And how we could  
leverage our department.

OMG, NICTA have a "Mission" statement. When all else fails, rewrite  
your mission statement.

You too can have a mission statement like theirs.

They have values too!
"NICTA is an exciting, empowering and creative environment..."
http://nicta.com.au/director/aboutnicta/our%20values.cfm BINGO!

And it appears that someone has taken the ball and run from the  
building, with ~$380M.

And if we're selling jobs, anyone got one for a BE CompE / LLB  
graduate. *nix appDev|DB Pref.
