Ministerial Inquiry into the Novopay project

On 4 June 2013, Hon Steven Joyce, the Minister responsible for Novopay, published the report of a Ministerial Inquiry to examine the issues that have arisen over the implementation of the education payroll system (Novopay). 

The objectives of the Inquiry were to:

  1. examine the issues that have arisen leading up to, during and after the implementation of the education payroll system (Novopay) and determine why the project has not succeeded as originally intended
  2. assess whether the governance and management of the Novopay project were sound and accorded with appropriate practice
  3. advise the responsible Minister on steps to be taken to address the ongoing performance and stakeholder/public confidence issues in the system and associated service model.
A number of key Ministry of Education documents relevant to the Inquiry were released on 4 June 2013. These can be found by clicking on the links below.
