E-mail I received from SA is below.

Dear XXXXXXXXXXX Reference Number: XXXXXX
Further to our email of 7 July 2010 to which you responded that you wished to be considered for State Sponsorship under the new State Migration Plan (SMP), Immigration SA wishes to advise you that while we await the implementation of the SMP (date yet unknown), we have taken the decision to process some applications currently in the Sponsorship Pipeline.
Your current sponsorship application will proceed and assessed accordingly if:
·You responded to our email of 7 July in the timeframe requested; AND
·You have submitted a complete application; AND
·Your Nominated Occupation is considered by Immigration SA to be priority for this State; AND
·The order of your application and your Nominated Occupation falls within our Planning level.
It is envisaged that processing of these applications will take up to 6 weeks. When a decision (approval or refusal) has been made, an email will be sent to you or your agent. At the same time, your application record will also be updated on the Online Client Tracking System, which you can check yourself.
This email is to inform you of the change in our process and does not require any action on your part. Do not contact Immigration SA as this may delay processing. If Sponsorship is granted, you will have 30 days in which to lodge your visa application with DIAC or your application will lapse. This email will also advise you of any other steps you need to take to confirm Sponsorship.
You will also be advised via email if your sponsorship application is refused. It is your responsibility to check your emails regularly for the outcome of your application. Emails are deemed to have been received at the end of the same day they are sent. Immigration SA does not take responsibility if the email sent to the address you/your agent provides is not delivered to you.
