Kimble Is Essential To Supporting the Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA) In Their Transformation To Executive Agency

GIAA is already seeing benefits with consistent time recording and better management information

Formed in October 2014 from six separate teams providing internal audit services to 40 to 50 Government clients, the Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA) will become an Executive Agency to the Treasury from April 2015.

GIAA selected Kimble which, as a cloud-based application, could be immediately accessed by all staff despite the teams still residing within their heritage organisations and being on different networks.

Implementation commenced late July 2014 and Kimble went live as planned on October 1st 2014. All 157 staff are now using Kimble to record their time. Capturing and understanding how time is spent is crucial to GIAA as they put in place a new charging model which ensures that they achieve cost recovery from April 2015.

For the first time we have consistent time recording that everyone is using and a policy that everyone is complying with – from our CEO to our admin staff’

GIAA is looking forward to exploiting more Kimble functionality

Although very early days, and with the main priority being time recording and analysis, GIAA are looking forward to implementing Kimble’s flexible resourcing functionality. This will enable them to allocate appropriately located and /or qualified staff regardless of heritage team and therefore improve client service, staff development, team motivation and overall cost management.

GIAA are also looking forward to using Kimble to support advance planning of programmes – helping to forecast and balance each year’s requirements against available resources which will increase by 400 staff from April 2015.

We are keeping things simple to begin with but we will definitely use more Kimble functionality. We recognise the potential benefits for our resource allocation, our forward planning and for our supporting information and MI
