As part of a new whole-of-government standardisation and consolidation of core ICT, Victorian Expenditure Review Committee has mandated that ICT expenditure greater than $250,000 is to be approved by the Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF) with effect from 1 July 2008.

Other key features of the Efficient Technology Services (ETS) program include:

  • One secured core desktop environment based on common applications, interfaces and work environment ( eg. email, web browsers)
  • A common trusted network based on consolidation of local and wide area network systems (eg. routers, switches)
  • Simplified login access using a common directory
  • A common hosting service based on consolidating back-office infrastructure (eg. servers, databases)
  • Standardised ICT support and management services (eg. incident management, service desk)

The Departments affected by this approval process include all ten departments and four inner budget agencies.
