System Support

Government of Samoa


The new System Support team was established under Phase II of the Public Finance Management Reform Program funded by AusAID.

The establishment of this division is critical in supporting the Integrated Government’s Financial and Payroll/HR Management Information System (Finance One – FMIS), which uses Technology One Software, as well as providing on-going support and training of users.  

Since the inception of the Finance One – FMIS in 2005, Government has been challenged with a wide range of issues and it has been the norm to outsource for assistance.  Establishing of the System Support Division has seen some of these issues efficiently remedied and providing support to users effectively.

To ensure line ministries capitalize on the use of the designed System Support team, its key functions are clearly identified below for information:
