The ICT Centre
provides quality ICT services at discounted rates
to community sector organisations. Operating as a team within The IT Department, the Centre has been serving the not-for-profit community for almost ten years.
We are the leading ICT service provider to disability organisations in Melbourne, and an active member of the NDS community. Our clients love our service and the fact that we are 'people people'. In customer satisfaction surveys, they give us an 'A' for our friendly service, quality, competence, and strategic advice.

The ICT Centre provides expertise in a range of areas, including:
- Heavily discounted software and hardware through Connecting Up
- ICT planning and budgeting for person-centred services and individualised funding (including DisabilityCare / NDIS)
- Maintaining the DHS required QDC and CRISSP reporting systems
- Applying for ICT related grants and funding
The Centre received funding from DHS in 2005 under the CSIF (Community Sector Investment Fund). The Centre continues to operate under its original mandate of delivering discounted ICT services to the sector.
Discounted ICT Services
As a way of serving the community, The IT Department offers community sector organisations substantial discounts from our standard rates.
In addition, The IT Department is a registered IT service provider with Connecting Up, and will ensure your organisation obtains the maximum licensing and hardware discounts available.
