Alesco Payroll Rollout Update


What is Alesco Payroll?

  • Alesco Payroll is a centralised government payroll in which Christian Health Services (PNG) in partnership with the Department of Finance, Department of Personnel Management, Department of Treasury and National the Health Department is working closely together with to roll out for CHS agencies.
  • The first recipients of the Alesco roll out were the CHS Training Schools who started in January 2016.
  • This accomplishment has been the build-up of seven years of planning and implementation by the various government departments and CHS (PNG) to fulfil NEC decision 375 (2013) to have a centralised payroll system for CHS health workers throughout the country.

CHS PNG is currently an online user of the Alesco Payroll. We value the strong partnership that we have with DoF, DPM, Treasury and NDOH and acknowledge the powerful committee that we are part of who has helped in so many ways to see this project a success.
