A state­ment from the NIS said that the scheme has be­gun meet­ing with ma­jor em­ploy­ers to aid with the data cleans­ing process among other mat­ters.

On Fri­day, it said that a team from the NIS led by Gen­eral Man­ager, Holly Greaves met with GDF Chief of Staff, Bri­gadier Pa­trick West and a team from the GDF. The meet­ing was con­ducted at the GDF’s Head­quar­ters, Camp Ayan­ganna, Thomas Lands.

The NIS state­ment said that some of the is­sues high­lighted in­clude the im­por­tance of record keep­ing at both en­ti­ties, the need for and im­por­tance of net­work­ing, the shar­ing of rel­e­vant data and the need for con­sis­tent ed­u­ca­tional ses­sions for GDF em­ploy­ees

The state­ment said that mem­bers from both sides of the ta­ble left the meet­ing sat­is­fied with the progress made and com­mit­ted to fre­quent com­mu­ni­ca­tion with each other.

The NIS said that it has al­ready met with the Veter­ans As­so­ci­a­tion and GuySuCo. The NIS ad­dded that it is also pleased to re­port that as a re­sult of those meet­ings with GuySuCo, a num­ber of es­tates were able to com­plete the data cleans­ing process and this will aid in the smooth elec­tronic sub­mis­sion of con­tri­bu­tions.
