Information Technology Staffing Support Grant

 

Summary

 

From the 2017/18 school year, EDB provides an additional recurrent cash grant to all public sector primary and secondary schools (including special schools) for strengthening the IT staffing support to practise e-learning and take forward various education initiatives which will harness IT.  The funding amount for the 2019/20 school year will be $317,338 for each school. The grant will be adjusted annually in accordance with the movement of Composite Consumer Price Index.  Details of the grant can be referred to EDB Circular No. 11/2017.

 

Ambit

 

The ITSS Grant should primarily be used for strengthening schools’ IT staffing support. Schools could use the grant to employ their own staff or appoint IT companies to provide agency worker(s) to render the required technical support services in school campus. Please refer to the Appendix of EDB Circular No. 11/2017 for the recommended duties of these technical support staff. If there is still remaining funding, schools may then use the remainder of the grant to acquire additional technical support services beyond the provision of their own technical staff or agency worker(s), such as data migration and cloud management, from service providers to meet their specific needs.

 

For schools employing their own technical support staff, they are advised to fulfil their obligations as good employers by giving full consideration to the market pay level and work conditions, including annual pay adjustment when determining the actual remuneration package.  Schools are also advised to provide training opportunities to enable the technical support staff to keep abreast of the advancement in technology.  All expenditure related to employment of staff, such as salaries, MPF, any other statutory benefits and relevant training, could be paid out by this grant and no additional funding will be provided to cover such expenditures.
