The planned systems upgrade to our state’s schools may soon grind to a halt – and the implications could be massive.

    The sentence "More than 70% of schools that piloted the upgrade have said the installed components did not match up to what they were promised" should be an alarming wake-up call to the DEC.

    LMBR the worlds biggest white elephant, 8 or so years in the promise and still nothing to show. Should have paid for one of the local (Australian) software companies eg SENTRAL to design/develop the product to the specs required by schools not the bureaucratic mess we have now.

    LMBR - a tragic joke. The Auditor Generals report fails to discover the facts that:
    TAFE Institutes still cannot enrol students under the Smart and Skilled funding arrangements. It's now well into January - months behind the usual enrolment process. The SALM enrolment system is a total disaster - requiring massive manual intervention.
    TAFE Institutes cannot access financial reporting from the finance system. Institute Managers are operating blind.
    Absolute chaos and waste.....
