So another $23million spent on IT Services. I thought Education was a part of "Shared Services." What has this cost to date, and is this another $23million on to the "Shared Services" project? When will the Government learn?

There are currently three Shared Service Centres throughout the W.A Government. Health, Education and DTF Shared Services (I believe DTF Shared Services is what Andy is referring to). This contract is specifically for the Education Departments Shared Service Centre and in no way involves the Health Shared Service or DTF Shared Service Centre. With regard to the government learning? The government has very little Information Technology expertise in house anymore, mainly due to the Court Government outsourcing the majority of it in the 1990's. The $23million is what the Private Sector is demanding to provide a service to government.

The question isn't about Shared Services, it's about why the Department went with such a huge spend on Oracle products to build a student/teacher learning portal which still does not provide the functionality it promised to do four years ago. Want to know what this multimillion dollar bohemoth of an Oracle Student Learning system is? It's glorifed SharePoint, but was "custom designed and built" to the tune of $5-10million.
