"NSW is the largest recipient of federal Government
funding for round one of the National Secondary Schools Computer
Fund (NSSCF) but its months of haggling for extra money to manage

to buy computers but this was deemed insufficient. NSW said it

five years it was promised, while some projections showed there
would be additional costs of $3 for every $1 spent on a machine.
