Sedari has formed a joint venture with Sydney-based Cloud Registry and the Council of Country Code Administrators (CoCCA) to submit a comprehensive response to the recently announced Request for Proposals to facilitate the submission of four new top-level domain applications for the New South Wales and Victorian Governments.
"This is a formidable team that not only answers the immediate project management aspects of the RFP but sets up a robust organization for the long term operation of these impressive new domain names," said Sedari's CEO Dr. Liz Williams.
Dr. Williams has been involved in the .au space since the early days of the formation of the .au Domain Administration as an elected Board Director and active participant in policy working groups to introduce competition into Australia's Internet.
She commented: "This is the next exciting step for the expansion of the domain name system in Australia using the best technology, the most innovative business models and the intellectual capacity of a global team of recognized experts."
"We approached the Sedari team to complement our technical expertise with strong project management skills and detailed ICANN knowledge. Together, we will work with the stakeholders and governments to pave the way for a flourishing digital economy," added Andrew Douglas, the consortium's project manager and Chief Operations Officer at Cloud Registry. Cloud Registry has a strong foothold in the Asia Pacific new gTLD market, and has worked with Sedari on all the technical aspects of the ICANN requirements.
CoCCA's CEO Garth Miller provided the important name distribution and long term operational experience for the consortium. Miller said: "CoCCA's experience working with governments, public administrations and country code administrators is invaluable to the consortium. CoCCA has developed, over more than a decade of operations, robust systems that work all over the world."
