Ok, first thing I noticed - You should do something to make the links stand out a little more (what you've done for the about us section with the '>>' things was good). Maybe change the font colour or something.
Next: In your drop-down menus, where you have submenus, you should really have an arrow to let the user know that the menu option opens a submenu.
The text tips on the side links - I'm kinda mixed on those.. I don't know if I like them or not The images to the left are a little choppy - and could be sharpened up a bit.
"Joined Up Thinking Delivering Real Benifits" maybe it's a Brittish phrase, but this Canadian guy doesn't understand that at all ...
The main page could use a nice picture in the middle - cause right now it looks a little plain/boring.
MINOR: See if you can find something else for the header image other than clouds - clouds are really overused. Maybe something a little more relevant to your company - like say, people in a conference or something .. it should also tie in with what you're trying to say in the phrase...
Hope I wasn't too mean

Nice clean, corporate look. I would have liked to see it fit a 800x600 window as well, but that would probably mess up your menu. Menu is very nice as well, although a little slow initially; i second indicating a third level menu.
I would make the very pale blue background from the text headers a little darker to make them stand out more; at present, it's barely visible, and i do like this way to emphasize headers.
Lastly, i recommend a page footer (something like a thin horizontal line, and maybe a copywright notice in small type beneath it) to indicate to visitors when they reached the end of the page. Whenever i spot something like that, i always feel it gives the lot an extra professional look.
The only thing I'd comment on is the icon for additional information
requires a mouse-over to find out what it does. Someone visually scanning the page may not twig that you have to click on this icon to get what they're looking for.
You may want to provide a text link or add some text to the icon.
