COMMERCE and Employment considered removing financial control of Guernsey Dairy from the States’ much-maligned new computer system, it has emerged.
Minister Kevin Stewart said his board decided against reverting to an alternative system despite the ‘pressure’ and ‘challenges’ caused by the SAP system.
‘The board resolved to keep the Dairy in SAP and not revert to an alternative accounting system,’ he said.
‘While there was a full recognition that the implementation had caused considerable pressure on the business it was felt that the level of risk remained manageable and that reverting back to the previous system, at the time, could have potentially caused greater risk during such a turbulent transient phase.
