    One Third Of Head Teachers Donít Know How Much They Spend On ICT

    Link: One third of head teachers don’t know how much they spend on ICT

    I would say that our Head would be able to say how much we spend. He seems to have his finger on the pulse in that respect.

    What about your Heads?

    business manager knows how much ICT spends more than I do, and I run the budget! but that said, she deals with the broadband and such like, and I dont.

    I'd say our head wouldn't really know, but our bursar would know.

    Off the top off our head's head, I'm not sure if the exact amount can just roll off the tongue. But our head is aware of it (a general amount)... After all (at my place) I create the IT Services budget/project plan, then that gets passed to the business manager who goes thru it with me, then he takes that to the finance governors and the head to either get it approved or reduced.

    After all, the ICT budget is just one many budgets that is there in schools.

    The head might not know, but it's not like the school as a whole doesn't. I wouldn't expect the head to know off the top of their head precisely how much we spend anyway, same as I wouldn't expect them to know how much we spend on premises etc. That's why schools employ business managers or bursers, because they're trusted to run the finances of the school. If they needed to know, they'd ask the right people for the information.

    It also all depends on what you think of as your ICT spend. Do you take into account the energy consumption? What about paper in printers? Aircon and the maintenance of it in ICT suites and server rooms? Broadband? Other LA / RBC services (email, filtering, etc)? MIS? CCTV (if run over your network)? And this is before you get into hardware and software (including the cameras and scanners purchased by individual departments), support contracts, the cost of training (teachers, admin and support staff) ...

    The list goes on.
