Contraloria warned Education Ministry of delays in implementing new payment system

The current problem with the salaries of teachers, the protests and the new president spending his time on a fix could have all been avoided if officials of the Ministerio de Educación Pública (MEP) would have heeded to the warnings of the Comptroller General.

The Contraloría General de la República (CGRP) says it warned the MEP of the delays in the implementation of the Integra2 payment system, that has left thousands of teachers with problems with their salary payments, some not being paid since the beginning of the school year in February.

Paragraph 3.5 of the CGRP reports concludes that “it was determined that the MEP-Digital Project, developed to optimize the management of human resources and reasonably ensure the correct execution of the payment to staff through the implementation of INTEGRA payment system is delayed in relation to the terms agreed in the respective contracts and addenda”.

Notwithstanding the MEP decided to adapt the application.

The project cost the public US$1.706.652 dollars.

Comptroller’s press office said that between 2010 and 2012, three reports were made on the mandatory compliance on the implementation of the new software payment system.
