Principals question PWC Novopay Numbers

Principals question PWC Novopay Numbers

The Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) update on the latest teachers’ pay round appears to be out of sync with reported school experiences. The report indicates a total of 1,662 staff as not paid, under paid or over paid, while a survey of school principals conducted immediately after the latest pay round yielded a figure of 25,639 staff being incorrectly paid out of 1,166 schools responding.

Further results of the survey indicated that over half (55.3%) of schools would be paying staff directly out of their school’s operations grant due to Novopay errors, and 96% of schools have on-going problems that are yet to be resolved from previous pay rounds.

‘Our survey results paint quite a different picture from the PWC figures released’, said Philip Harding, President of the New Zealand Principals’ Federation today.

‘What the PWC report is not capturing are the on-going errors that just keep on compounding and for many schools these errors go right back to the start of Novopay’s introduction,’ he said.

‘The report may provide some helpful information for the immediate pay round on some limited parameters, but by no means captures the reality for the majority of schools,’ said Harding.
