Can we drop the trailing 'T'?
It's only the government/education sector who use it. Everyone else calls it IT, or "tech".
*It's all information, whether it's travelling (being communicated) or at rest
See https://royalsociety.org/~/media/education/computing-in-schools/2012-01-12-computing-in-schools.pdf. That paper recommends losing the 'ICT' term from UK education because the subject had become (in the space of 20 years) perceived as 'boring' by most learners.
( A later report may or may not have recommended that 'History' be renamed 'Nazis and wars and other cool shit' )

Nazis and Pyramids? Last time I had access to Sky they had a channel that seemed totally devoted to nothing but that.
Can we not call it "tech"? There's a whole raft of T out there that has nothing to do with I.
In any case, the following policy remains a likely deal-maker for me personally. I've touched on it in my guest post.
I work in IT, and I have to say that I wonder what an "ICT policy" is, in this context. You might as well ask about someone's "filing cabinet policy". IT is a tool, for storing and presenting information. Concerns about IT are normally broader than just the tool that's being used.
Was this concerned with privacy? Putting more govt functions on line? Accessibility concerns with that? Technology enhancement/refreshment? I'd be more interested in listening, perhaps, if the terms were even slightly defined.
Is there a transcript of this podcast available?
