The Ministry for Primary Industries

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) was formed in 2011 following the merger of the Ministries of Agriculture and Forestry, Fisheries and the New Zealand Food Safety Authority. It is a significant contributor to the Government’s Business Growth Agenda. MPI selected AMS to be its HR and Payroll solution provider in November 2011, selecting a full outsourced service delivery model.

In addition to providing and maintaining the technology environment, AMS became MPI’s payroll partner, undertaking pays, providing custom management information, HR systems support and providing MPI’s 2,900 staff with frontline support for payroll queries.

AMS have a structured partnering approach for their clients which has supported MPI’s vision for developing its HR support systems. Working closely together, MPI and AMS have developed a Continuous Improvement Program to streamline and automate HR and payroll processes, and deliver greater efficiency in HR and Payroll processing systems.
