Dakar Software wins €2.3m MITA payroll solution tender

Dakar Software Systems has won a tender to provide the Malta Information Technology Agency with a new enterprise payroll solution within the public service.

The five-year agreement will enable the government to meet new business requirements and improve the overall human resources management process. The total investment by the government will be around €2.3 million over five years.

This project forms part of the first phase of the Government Human Resources Management Programme which aims at applying ICTs to enable transformation and improvements to HR management, skills upgrading, performance management and other business intelligence features to assist management.

The new technology will provide flexibility and enable decentralisation of online operations within ministries and departments more effectively. For the first time, the payroll solution will provide e-Government services to the employees by enabling them to directly access their personal information remotely. They will be able to request vacation leave or report sick leave from work or home through appropriate security features. Traditionally, payroll technologies are considered to be a back office system with access limited only to the few but with the possibility of e-services, the new payroll solution will provide a better service to all government employees.

The government payroll handles nearly 45,000 employees which are spread in 3,595 sections belonging to 62 departments. The total government payroll expenditure amounts to a monthly average of €40 million gross which totals to over €0.5 billion per year. These are made up from the wages and salaries of 27,000 full-time employees, 2,892 part-timers, 14,386 students and 676 who fall within the Trainee and Apprenticeship Scheme.

Dakar Software Systems started business over 15 years ago. Extensive experience in people management applications, acquired mainly locally but consolidated overseas, has enabled Dakar to maintain a successful suite of applications.
