The Education Department will undertake an audit to identify teachers who have issues relating to the 2014-16 salaries and allowances agreement.
Education Minister Nick Kuman revealed this yesterday during a joint media conference with the PNG Teachers Association and the Teaching Service Commission in Port Moresby.
It was the result of a meeting between officials from the education department, PNG Teachers Association and the commission on Tuesday.
The audit was one of the steps they agreed on.
He said the audit would be for the 48,000 teachers who were on the Alesco payroll system.
Kuman said there was some information not available to them and had ordered for an audit on the Alesco payroll system to identify teachers who had problems with their salaries and allowances to be paid within two weeks.
Kuman said there were two very important groups of people in the education system – the students and the teachers.
“Without them, there is no education department, no teaching service commission, no teachers’ association,” he said. “These two are very important and key players when it comes to the education system.”
Kuman said they would set up a teaching service commission desk at the education divisions in the provinces.
In addition, teachers’ salaries and pay-slips can be accessed on line by individual teachers using their passwords.
