Tourism New Zealand in Wellington is planning to outsource its payroll due to system upgrades.
According to request for information documents released last week, the department wants a partner who can manage its payroll system, work with the Human Resources Information System and provide advice regarding payroll matters in areas such as the Holidays Act.
The department is in the process of completing an electronic leave approval. Its payroll partner will have to supply information via Excel format including payslip details, leave information and master payroll data.
Tourism New Zealand has 70 employees based in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. It also manages the payroll of a subsidiary which has 15 employees.
The deadline for replies is Wednesday, February 4. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 24590.
