Mal Grierson discusses the evolution of the Treasury EDP branch to becoming CITEC. He notes the work of Ken Pope who was brought out in the late 1950s from the UK to help the introduction of computers into the public service. He notes that at the time of his appointment to the State Government Computer Centre it was Leo Hielscher who noticed the cost of computers to government. He notes that by the 1970s it was realised that computers were going to be significant for the public service and Treasury took control of it. He notes that it remained part of Treasury until just before the Goss era.
