Ms Dundasasked the Treasurer, upon notice:
In relation to Microsoft products over the financial year 2002-03:
How much did ACT Government departments spend on Microsoft licence fees;
How much did School Education, within the Department of Education, Youth and Family Services, spend on Microsoft licence fees;
How much did Territory-owned corporations spend on Microsoft licence fees;
What percentage of total software spending by Territory entities was spent buying software developed or modified in the ACT;
How much did Territory entities spend on IT support relating to use of Microsoft products.
Mr Quinlan: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
InTACT paid $2,293,368 for the annual renewal of ACT Government Microsoft Licensing for the period 1 July 2002 to 30 June 2003.
The costs attributable to Public Schools from this amount for 2002-2003 was $47,000.
ACTEW's spending on Microsoft license fees was $264,171.60 in 2002-2003. The great majority of staff in other Territory Owned Corporations are covered under the whole of government contract with Microsoft.
This information is not readily available. The identification of the information would be excessively time consuming and resource intensive.
As far as InTACT is aware there was no money paid to Microsoft on IT support relating to the use of Microsoft products for 2002-03, additional to that paid via license fees.
