With the acquisition of the Z Series Virtual Mainframe in the last financial year, DCS has expanded its capacity and services provided especially in the mid-range services and the ePASSII project. The ePASSII project is a major system development and implementation project with substantial costs being incurred during the initial project implementation phase. This directly contributed to the increase in sales of goods and services by $1.19 million, a corresponding $1.32 million increase in purchases of goods and services, and $0.4 million increase in depreciation expenses. The increase in employee expenses is consistent with the increase in number of employees from 57 employees as at 30 June 2006 to 59 employees as at 30 June 2007.
