A	Petersham Park Waste Collective [PPWC] - dog owners concerned about Waste and 
	recycling management in their local Park - formed 30 Jun 2019

The Petersham Park Waste Collective [PPWC] are dog-owners and local rate-payers 
who have been endeavouring to have more effective park waste management for many 
years eg 2005 Letter to Jo HOBSON and 2018/19 Photographs of Park Waste

B	Sustainability Actions Network [SAN] - a network of local people concerned about 
	Sustainability issues - formed 2008

The Sustainability Action Network [SAN] was formed to develop projects that would assist 
with Sustainability issues like waste management

The SAN members have worked together on a number of projects Including:

	d  2017  UNHCR/EWB Zambia Refugee Project - using Biogas to create Energy

	c  2015  Review implementation of 9 different Australian eHealth Standards

	b  2011  Reviewing different "Models of Wellbeing"

	a  2009  North Sydney Council 2020 Community Engagement Strategy [CES]

C	Open Interchange Consortium [OIC] - an incorporated Australian Association of 
	Information and Communication Technology [ICT] consultants - formed 1994

The OIC was formed and incorporated by Australian ICT consultants to assist/educate/raise 
awareness in Small, Medium and Large businesses about ICT issues through education/ 
awareness seminars, ICT tenders and ICT projects

Founded in 1994 to assist Large, Medium and Small Business for understanding Electronic 
Technology issues through regular lunchtime lectures and special interest groups

On 23 Jul 1996 at the Annual General Meeting [AGM], OIC members gave a unanimous 
mandate to form an eCredits system for Volunteers

On 23 Aug 1996 OIC members used the "Group Support System [GSS]" provided by one of 
the members "Decision Support Centres Australia" to agree the OIC Mission, Services and 

In 1997 while researching GSS applications, the paper from the University of Arizona 
"Lessons from a dozen years of GSS research involving 4,000 projects" confirmed the vast 
potential of GSS for project management including:

	Table 1. Lessons learned about GSS in organisations

  1  GSS technology does not replace leadership.
  2  GSS technology does not imply any particular leadership style.
  3  GSS can make a well planned meeting better; and it can make a poorly planned meeting worse.
  4  Individuals must have incentive to contribute to group effort.
  5  GSS can reduce labour costs by more than 50% and project time by up to 90%.

In 1998 members developed an On-line system called OIC Y2K Resource Asset Management 
Program [OIC Y2K RAMP] to enable Small & Medium size Enterprises [SMEs] to provide On-line 
evidence for their suppliers and customers of their progress with Y2K Compliance

Once the Y2K issue had been completed the SMEs could use the RAMP system to maintain their 
Asset Registers On-line  - this is now called "Cloud Computing"

In Jun 1999 this On-line software application won 1st prize in the "IT for SME" Category of the 
prestigious Global Bangemann Challenge in Stockholm Sweden where the trophy was presented 
by the King of Sweden

In Jul 2000 members released anXML Tender Information Management Service [TIMS] to 
provide a uniform On-line Tender systems for Australian and New Zealand Federal, State and 
Local Government tenders - TIMS published over 18,000 tenders analysed by 9 different
industry groups and 11 different application areas

In 2001 the Federal Government Department of Employment, Workplace Relations and Small 
Business [DEWRSB] commissioned the OIC Local Government Interest Group [LZIG] to conduct 
a series of On-line surveys with 173 NSW Local Government agencies about raising "Awareness 
of XML for On-line local Government applications" 

OIC members established over 20 Special interest groups including:

	1	XML [XZIG] sponsored from Mar 2000 by Sun Microspystems

	2	Local Government [LZIG] established Mar 2001 sponsored by DEWRSB

	3	Open Source & Linux[OZIG] established Jan 2004

	4	eHealth [HZIG] established Mar 2011

	5	Cryptocurrencies & Blockchain [TZIG] established Oct 2016

In Oct 2006 the OIC was invited to speak at the International OASIS conference in Sydney 
about "XML in the Government Tender Process"

D	Halisa International Network [HIN] - an International Association of Information and 
	Communication Technology [ICT] consultants - formed 1987

HIN was established from the contacts made after Input'87 in San Francisco and 
subsequent international conferences

In 1990 the British Standards Institute [BSI] DISC entered into a Joint-Venture with Halisa 
Europe to evaluate the RUBAC methodology for Electronic Committee Information 
management [ECIM]

At that time BSI had over 400 Committees with members around the world and was printing 
and posting over 1,000,000 (1 Million) pages of Committee Minutes each year

This joint-venture with BSI formed the basis of ECIM implemented by the Open Interchange 
Consortium [OIC]  

In 1992 Halisa conducted a research project with the Institution of Electrical Engineers [IEE] 
in London for Electronic Events Registration which had over 100,000 members and held 
over 450 events a year

This project researched how to enable members to register and pay electronically for event 
attendance electronically by Electronic Event Information Management [EEIM]

This project formed part of the Electronic Association Information Management [EAIM] 
project funded in 1997 by Ourworld Global Network [OGN], The Commonwealth Bank of 
Australia [CBA], AIDC and Halisa International for the Open Interchange Consortium 

E	Yarra Energy Foundation - provided the reports on the City of Yarra "Closing the Poop 
	Loop" 2012/2014 project on Public response to turning Dog Poo into Methane and Fertiliser

F	Global Victory Enterprises ABN 625-974-512 - provided research and advice on Biogas 
	Digestion systems

The Project Manager for this project is Stephen GOULD who is the Partner - EII Projects HIN and 
the Public Officer of the OIC and SAN both of which are chaired by Peter AXTENS LLB (Retired)

Stephen GOULD represented the Australian Small Business Association [ASBA] on the Australia 
1S/11 EDI Committee from 1987-1989

The RUBAC tm [Rational Universal Business Automation Code] coding structure was developed 
and owned by the Hamme Family Trust of whom Leonard Arthur GOULD [LAG] was the original 

LAG worked for the British Overseas Aircraft Corporation [BOAC] as a technical development 

From 1963-1973 LAG represented BOAC on the International Air Transport Association ATA 100 
and, according to a 1971 letter from Air France, he was responsible for nominating the coding 
structure which was agreed by all aircraft manufacturers and airplanes for their technical manuals

In 1984 Halisa Pty Ltd undertook research funded by the Chairman Sedat TEZJAN, Technical 
Director Leonard GOULD and Managing Director Stephen GOULD

This Family funding was acknowledged by Austrade London in 1988

This coding structure is the basis of the XML Coding Structure for all the On-line Applications 

The full RUBAC code is 32 ASCII characters in 4 sections of 8 ASCII characters

Section 1: donates the recipient code by Country and SIC Classification and each person in the 
organisation structure eg Eurofighter 1992

Section 2:  donates the sender code by Country and SIC Classification and each person in the 
organisation structure 

Section 3: donates the form template code which is held at sender and receiver computer systems 
so that only the variable information in the form has to be sent electronically in the business cycle 

This section incorporates the date and time and electronic document is sent by using an ASCII 
code version of ISO-8601 date and time standard in the document code hence the Blockchain is
automatically time and date stamped

Section 4: Barcode to identify products and the waste products, a description and the associated 
recycling process for that waste product and a quantity has to be sent with the code

This Barcode section was appreciated in 1988 by the UK Article Number Association [ANA]
