Government is contemplating on terminating a contract with Twenty Third Century Systems, a company which has been implementing the new Integrated Financial Management Information System, Ifmis, on grounds of poor performance.
According to a letter which Zodiak Online has seen, the Accountant General's office has noted 14 faults, bordering on incompetence and poor performance, which have caused delays in vital trainings, the commission of the disaster recovery centre among others.
The letter also notes that indefinite withdrawal of labour by consultants and employees of the Zimbabwean based company, due to non-payment of salaries and allowances has affected performance of the company.
It is for this reason that the office of the Accountant General has in the letter warned to revoke the contract, if all the components are not delivered by September 30.
When contacted both Accountant General, Henry Mphasa and Twenty Third Systems spokesperson, Cleo Manyika declined to comment on the matter.
The warning comes amid concerns that the Zimbabwean based company has not been paying its employees for 11 months, a development which Manyika refused to comment on.
In 2019, the government contracted the Zimbabwean based ICT company to set up the Ifmis, a system meant to plug out corruption loopholes.
