View answer

Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy will be aware, my Department provides a payroll service to primary, post-primary, non-teaching and retired staff. The service has some 130,000 users and is managed by my Department’s Payroll Division in Athlone.

The payroll system is an electronic system and a number of processes are already highly automated. For instance, the submission of leave absences for school staff and claims for payment for substitution through the Online Claims System (OLCS).

I am pleased to be able to advise the Deputy that my Department has concluded the upgrade of the school staff payroll software systems, as planned, in 2021. The primary purpose of this upgrade is to receive continued support from the Department’s vendor and to upgrade payroll software systems.
