Why is funding sought for this project? 1 The Office of Transport Security was only formed 3 months ago to resolve the Business Rules issues for eCommerce applications involved with Dangerous Cargoes. 2 At this stage neither the Senior Management of the Ports and DOTARS are unfamiliar with the technical challenges for implementing eCommerce applications and allocating appropriate budgets and resources 3 OIC members have been understanding the technical issues involved and developing the electronic infrastructure to support this type of project but do not have the financial resources to fund this important project for the ports 4 Key consultants like Ben ANSON are only available now as they finish the current project while the information and contacts are still fresh before he moves to the next project
