Ministry talking to all schools about Novopay


The Secretary for Education, Lesley Longstone, says all schools will be contacted starting today as the Ministry takes further steps to resolve issues with the new payroll system.

Ms Longstone says a specialist team from the Ministry and Talent2 will be calling every school about their end-of-year reports and to get a full understanding of any other issues they want to raise.

“At the moment nothing is more important than teachers and other school staff getting accurately paid and we need to get a good picture from schools about where they are currently at with Novopay.”

Ms Longstone says the Ministry is committed to having a pay system that is fully effective and gets it right for all school staff.

“I am aware that on top of the regular pay cycles, payroll administrators are also working to complete their end-of-year reports by Wednesday and we have dedicated support in place for this.”

Ms Longstone says it has been very disappointing to have so many problems with the new system.

“I know a number of school staff and payroll administrators have been frustrated trying to work through them and we have shared that frustration.

“I will make sure the Ministry is doing everything it can working with its service provider Talent2 to get this sorted out for schools and I want to thank staff again for their hard work and perseverance.”
