Abstract
As one of the developing countries, GoI realize that in order to improve its national competitiveness, the main assignment is to improve the educational system through the utilization of ICT. To achieve this goal efficiently is to involve all state universities in Indonesia that already have the basic resources for ICT implementation. Through DIKTI-INHERENT project called Institution Capacity Development in Information and Communication Technology, GoI not only can reduce the overall cost but also can share and deliver the responsibility to every state university in Indonesia for maintaining the project sustainability. To maintain the sustainability of the project UNIMED determine two decisions: (1) to maximize the use of cyber cafe that could generate revenue up to 261 million Rupiah (US$ 27,473.68) per year; (2) to implement the e-mail services that could generate revenue up to 815,1 million Rupiah (US$ 85,800) per year. The utilization of ICT at UNIMED not only can improve its academia ability towards ICT, but also can deliver service towards the community or other institution within their area by sharing its bandwidth capacities.
