Dear Mr Ashton
Clearly Novopay is not working. The contract, signed with a previous government, over promised and, to date, has massively failed to deliver.
I do not right now have any confidence that there is likely to be any improvement in the performance delivery of the contract.
So as to allow both parties breathing space and time to re-evaluate our respective positions I have decided to contract out the delivery of both teaching and ancillary staff pay to individual schools and bulk fund them accordingly. Any additional costs associated with this exercise will be a charge against Talent2.
At the end of three months I will reassess the position. It maybe of course that schools will welcome the opportunity to manage their own payrolls in which case we will need to discuss termination of our contract.
