Quick -- What does "off pat" mean to an Australian?

In English-English, I'd take that to mean either "Well Rehearsed" - ie
"I had my lines off pat, the speech was a doddle."
Is that good?

FoRKers, please help.
I'm working on a business plan and one of the comments
about a fact was that "we need to have this off pat".
