    Just some quick thoughts:

    1. Work on your tabbed navigation bar:

    2. Work with the colours - those pastelcolours makes the site look dreamy and "girly"
    Here's a great tool for making colour schemes:

    3. Use the left- an rightbar more - at the moment it is simply a spaceholder for some boxes that looks like commercials

    4. Be more persistent in your use of colours and fonts - it is very messy and it's not easy to keep a clear picture of the information at hand

    5. Use valid mark-up. Used properly, it speeds up your site, and makes it viewable in most browsers.

    6. Use valid css styles - it makes it easier to make adjustments later on, as well as making your loadtimes smaller (again, IF used properly). By removing the style-information from the html, you also makes it easier for searchengines to index your site, which ultimately could end up in better listings in the searchresults.

    Hypelinks that are displayed in a vertical list can have CSS display: block; applied, this will increase the hit area making it easier to click. Applying a hover: state will provide the user with a visual reference to which link they will be accessing.

    Your top navigation becomes very messy and spaced out on larger resolutions, you should consider wrapping it inside a container element with a fixed width in order to keep them together.
