Three prominent organizations signed a MOU today to ensure the smooth facilitation of sharing data.
The Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service, Tertiary Scholarships and Loans Board and the Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts.
FRCS Chief Executive Visvanath Das says the MOU will enable all parties to maximize the recovery of student loans and eliminate any fraudulent behavior relating to the recovery processes.
“This will also enhance our service to TELS students who are now able to access their account balance through their portals. This MOU will enable up-to-date student information and real-time account balances.”
The MOU was signed between FRCS Chief Executive Officer, Visvanath Das, TSLB Chief Executive Officer, Bobby Maharaj and MEHA Permanent Secretary, Alison Burchell.
It will also allow FRCS to work closely and enhance their partnership in carrying out statutory responsibilities towards revenue collection.
Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts Permanent Secretary Alison Burchell says the sharing of data will benefit their ministry in ensuring that those families who meet the threshold will be eligible for subsidized transport to and from school.
