The Australian government funded a variety of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) programs throughout regional Australia through its Networking the Nation (NTN) program. The Community Technology Centre @ New South Wales (CTC@NSW) was one such program. However, it was jointly funded by NTN and the NSW State Government. Although the business planning process was an integral part of what communities had to do when they applied for a CTC@NSW grant, community inputs and outcomes regarding this process were not fully evaluated in the CTC@NSW program’s Final Report. An online survey of 55 CTCs funded through this program was subsequently conducted and revealed that the business plan was a key determinant of the success or failure of the CTCs that responded to this survey.
