Digital Government Case Studies: NovoPay
Novopay is an IT solution that pays 110,000 teachers and others employed by 2, 500 schools, on 15 different employment agreements, a total of around $3.4 billion annually.
In 2004 the Ministry of Education (MoE) released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for ‘Schools Payroll’ to replace the aging digital payments system infrastructure then outsourced to Datacom. Service Centre ‘pay clerk services’ for individual schools were to continue. Synergy/Talent 2 were selected as the preferred vendor and the project to deliver the new School payroll became known as Novopay.
