    Our spend is less than that as well £207 per pupils would come in very handy! Depends on number of pupils I suppose.

    So thats £175k per year??



    As an aside - are people including in their figures things such as leasing, warranties and support contracts? Or is this thread purely about the amount you get per year to purchase new equipment?

    Not bad at all then. Too many building projects for the school for us to get that kind of funding.

    The investment planner takes everything into account. If you are talking about a network budget we are given £2500 a year to keep things ticking over. Mind you we spend a lot more than that. The investment planner takes into account your technicians on costs, staff training regarding ICT, how many PC's you have and the renewal policy and a whole load more other things.

    Right I'll give the investment planner a go! Should be amusing based on the last 3 years budgets

    My budget is £12,000.

    With that i have to buy :

    all parts required for repairs or replacements
    Printer cartridges for all the printers on the curriculum network
    Projector bulbs
    Paper
    The old ict co-ordinators lease agreement..........
    Annual subscriptions, i.e. netsupport, broadband
    Stationary
    Wall mounted speakers and installation

    Anything left is spent on errrr... still waiting for some left over.....

    Then every year i have to submit a bid for money from the capital money which all departments of the school bid for. Last year i got nothing, the year before i got £2000 for a server, the year before that i got nothing. So this year i bid for over £30,000!!! I thought why go for little bids and get rejected, go big, and the tactic worked.. got everything i wanted and the boss wanted extra stuff so ended up with 43,500 to spend... well thats pending governors meeting tonight.......

    Excluding toners which are looked after under a contract with a company, we have been given 5k this year. We are a secondary school with around 1000 students.

    This will need to be used to buy projector bulbs for 50+ projectors and repairs (lots of vandalism) and replacements for chargers, AC adapters and all other computer and laptop repairs and maintenance.

    Anyone else think this is too harsh? We have £1800 quid left till April since replacing bulbs and repairing things that were overdue in April.

    It would be nice to know what budget some of you get purely for repairs and maintenance, a general techy type budget that excludes things such as broadband and full new computer suites.

    Hey, no prob - I always have the spreadsheet with the figures on very close to hand

    I have about £59k total to spend this year. It's been split down thusly...

    Toner - £6000
    Repair - £2000
    Minor IT Dept. Stuff (think screw drivers, post it notes) - £2000
    Software - £300 (two copies of Windows 2008R2 Datacenter)
    Printers - £2000
    Projectors - £3000

    What ever is left after that is room upgrades, laptop for teachers, etc.

    including every thing appart from staff, so thats:
    leasing
    hw purchasing
    sw purchasing
    infrustructure
    subscriptions (SLAs, broardband, etc)
    sundries

    £180 ish we have in our finacial plan

    but that does take into account new builds and server replacements and the scope for a managed wireless solution.
