in brief The South Australian Government has signed a $20.4 million deal with SunGard Higher Education to build a new student information system for the state's entire Technical and Further Education (TAFE) network.
"The new system will be web-based, managing all data related to
students from initial enquiries, admission, enrolment, payment of
fees, allocation to classes, recording of results, progression to
completion and graduation through to alumni," said state Education
Minister Michael O'Brien in a statement.
"It is a self-service arrangement managing student academic and
financial records and will keep information about all courses and
training offered at TAFE SA."
The contract with SunGard will last for 10 years, with the
implementation portion of the project, including a five-month implementation planning
project, slated to run for the first three years.
