5.15 Computerisation of the Accounting System
SILWF acquired an accounting software – ACCPAC as per Contract dated 09-03-11 with the firm New Technologies Enterprise (NTE) for $5,164,141, with the final payment (3rd) made on 28-12-11. NTE was the only authorized Service Provider in Guyana at that time.
At present, the manual accounting system is still in use since the four modules are yet to be fully implemented. These modules are Accounts Receivables, Accounts Payables, General Ledger and Common Services. Only the subsidiary Accounts Receivables opening balances at 01-01-14, and repayment receipts for January and February 2014 have been entered in this system for all estates.
It was explained that during the first week of June 2014, the server that operated this system ‘crashed’, however the data was successful backed up and saved. It was recommended that a Server be purchased which quotes were approximately $200,000, but this is yet to be done after approximately 15 months.
The benefits expected from the implementation of the ACCPAC system are now long overdue. The amount of $5.164M has already been expended and the management/Committee of SILWF is not receiving value for monies spent.
It is imperative that the Committee take urgent action to purchase the required Server to have this ACCPAC system operational and for the staff to be properly trained to operate this system.
