Allocation of funds

The total amount of School ICT Supplementary funding available for disbursement in each financial year is fixed. The appropriation to each school is calculated as a fraction of the total amount available.

The individual school appropriations are based on various allocation models depending on centre type and may include bases, notional student FTE enrolments, and computer numbers.

An overall rate per FTE is determined as follows:

  • available budget/total notional FTE (which includes various weightings).

Allocations for different centre types are as follows:

Primary and secondary schools

Allocation is based purely on enrolments, with a weighting of 1.2 assigned to senior secondary student FTE numbers (Year 11 and 12).

The calculation is as follows:

  • weighted enrolments x FTE Rate.

A minimum appropriation of $1,200 will apply following adjustment for Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and Secure Mail and Internet Services (SMIS) costs.

Special schools

Allocation includes:

  • a base amount of $2,400
  • a weighting of 2.0 for each FTE (i.e. one student is equal to twice the amount per student for primary and secondary schools).

The calculation is as follows:

  • base + (weighted enrolments x FTE Rate).

A minimum appropriation of $2,400 will apply following adjustment for Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and Secure Mail and Internet Services (SMIS) costs.

Specific purpose schools

Allocation includes:

  • a base amount of $2,400
  • a weighting of 2.0 for each FTE (i.e. one student is equal to twice the amount per student for primary and secondary schools).

The calculation is as follows:

  • base + (weighted enrolments x FTE Rate).

A minimum appropriation of $2,400 will apply following adjustment for Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and Secure Mail and Internet Services (SMIS) costs.

Note: Specific Purpose schools in hospitals use an average enrolment.

Environmental Education Centres, Outdoor Education Centres

Allocation includes:

  • a base amount of $2,400
  • an amount per computer equal to three times the FTE rate.

The calculation is as follows:

  • base + (computer Numbers x 3 x FTE Rate).

A minimum appropriation of $2,400 will apply following adjustment for Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and Secure Mail and Internet Services (SMIS) costs (these are invoiced to schools separately).

In November schools receive a letter regarding the payment of the School ICT Supplementary appropriation which provides details of the annual school payment for that year, including charges for the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and Secure Mail and Internet Services (SMIS).

Note: Bandwidth upgrade pro rata charges, also known as Bandwidth in Excess of Allocation (BEA), if applicable, will still apply and will be invoiced separately to schools.
