Before You Begin

Before proceeding you need to confirm that you have funds available for this purchase. This can be either through self-funding or a loan.

Loans are only available to schools. A loan may only be provided when a leased copier/MFD is being replaced with a copier/MFD of equal or lower speed.

Benefits Of The New Program

Over the coming 12 months the Department of Education and Training Procurement anticipates savings of $35 million from the significant reduction DET Procurement achieved off the purchase cost of  Imaging Devices. These savings are part of an ongoing program of centralisation and cost reduction that will realise $80 million in savings in 2008/09.
