When is the accounting system (currently being piloted by Fingal County Council) which allows for an aged analysis of debtors, expected to be introduced by the council?
Report issued by Eileen Hanlon, Head of Finance. The Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) is tasked with the upgrade of the Local Authorities Financial System. Fingal County Council is the pilot site for the new system and work on upgrading their system has started in late 2014 and is expected to be completed in early summer 2015. Roscommon County Council is then the validation site and they are expected to start upgrading their system in early 2015 and complete late summer 2015. Then the 5 other non-merger/unification sites are expected to upgrade their systems. Kildare County Council awaits issue of the national roll-out implementation schedule from the LGMA but expects the project to upgrade their Financial Management System to commence in October 2015.
