Annual Report 2016-17 | Department of Corporate and Information Services 187 DATA CENTRE SERVICES FINANCIAL REPORT INCOME DCS primary income source is from the provision of information technology services to clients, predominately government agencies. These services, classified under the income category of goods and services in Table 3 below represented 99.1% of DCS total income, with the remainder made up of interest and other miscellaneous income. Income from mainframe and midrange services had moderate growth due to increased client demand. Enterprise Storage income was lower which was offset by a similar reduction in expenses. The functions of Identity Management (ePASS) and Application Development have been delivered through the Department of Corporate and Information Services from 2015-16.

Employee costs were slightly lower due to delays in filling vacant positions and decreased overtime and allowance expenditure. During the year, DCS progressed the works program to prepare for a second data centre. As a result expenses in 2016-17 increased compared to 2015-16 mainly due to property leasing costs and higher depreciation costs related to increased asset acquisitions.

Enterprise Storage expenses were lower corresponding to a similar reduction in income. Data Centre Operations costs increased as a result of increased depreciation and property leasing costs for the second data centre site. The functions of Identity Management (ePASS) and Application Development have been delivered through the Department of Corporate and Information Services from 2015-16.
