New Creditors Payment System

The Finance Department are constantly working on new ideas to improve efficiencies and connectivity with colleagues in schools and centres.

The more recent project was to introduce an on line creditors payment system. This system allows for invoices and payments to be uploaded and approved locally for payment through the Finance Department in Wicklow Town. A note of acknowledgement to Mary Kemmy (Naas Office), Pearl Massey (Wicklow Town Office), the Creditors team and all school/centre administrators for their trojan work in rolling out this project over a three month period and ensuring it was fully operational for October 2015.
