Novopay #1

Much has been written, muttered and uttered re Novopay. Yet I wonder whether we have heard as yet the reality, as opposed to wishful thinking, union angst and media promotion.

I have no inside knowledge, but with the benefit of many years in assessing projects I will be writing a series of posts on the issue.

I suspect that fault, if there is fault, lies in a number of places and not just in one.

  1. Wow, you must be working that old computer hard to get it to die before the new one comes! Nice to hear from you again and I look forward to what you may find on Novopay. The most disturbing comment I heard on this saga was something to the effect that the contractor hadn’t done such a bad job considering the complexity of the payroll involved — without even a hint of suggestion they had ever considered whether the organisation should have taken the opportunity to address (reduce) the complexity rather than cope with it. I would not have thought that school payrolls ought to be any more complex than others. Compared to the Police one would have thought paying school teachers should be relatively simple.
