Abau Becomes First District to use Elesco Pay Roll System


The roll-out of the Elesco Payroll system in Abau District, today makes Abau the first district in Papua New Guinea to use this new system.

The launching cuts down the four hour-trip, public servants in Abau make to sort out their salary grievances in Port Moresby.

Teachers and medical officers are the first group of people, who will be benefiting from this system.

The Elesco HR and Payroll system is a service provided by the government through Concept Group, to manage the human resource.

It is software that gives public servants the opportunity to check their fortnight salaries or other benefits, from wherever they are stationed in.

Elesco was first rolled out in Mendi, Southern Highlands Province in 2001.

Today, it is used by an estimated five thousand people nationwide, and aims at monitoring and improving performances of public servants.

Primary School Teachers, in Abau say the system is an essential service.

Secretary of Personnel Management, John Kali also supports the roll-out.

Kali says now that the system is accessible in Abau, he challenged public servants to use the system instead of travelling into Port Moresby to sort out salary-related grievances.

The software was set up using the Telikom network.
