PPTA pleased with PwC involvement in Novopay

The PPTA's happy a non-Government party will play a role in the Novopay clean up.

PricewaterhouseCoopers has been called in to review records on Novopay held by both Talent2 and the Ministry of Education.

PPTA president Angela Roberts says hopefully PwC will uncover the facts, and provide some answers.

"We've been relying on people within the Ministry to be honest and frank with us from the start and we're not sure how much they've been telling us."

Ms Roberts says schools need financial support to survive while the problems are sorted out.

There has been a muted response from Talent2 about the latest move to put the company on notice, over ongoing problems with Novopay .

Minister in charge Steven Joyce says it's a legal move that has to be done should a decision be made to shelve the current contract.

In a statement, Talent2 says they fully acknowledge that legally both parties will need to reserve their respective rights under the contract.

The company says they're more focused on improvements to the teachers payroll system than discussing contractual matters between the parties.
