IT system revamp
26 March, 2018, 12:00 am
THE Tertiary Scholarship and Loans Board (TSLB) is now working on their IT system to ensure students are updated and given their financial statements every six months.
Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum confirmed this last week after concerns raised by a student of the University of the South Pacific (USP) during the 2018/2019 National Budget consultation with tertiary students.
The student said it would be advisable for the board to advise students on the amount of money they received every semester and the amount of money they owed the Government.
The student said this should be done in order to ensure transparency.
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the board was allocated $2 million in order to enable them to invest in an IT system.
TSLB chief executive officer Bobby Maharaj confirmed the team was working on updating its IT system and it would be completed in the next three months.
