Senate attempts move away from beleaguered Phoenix pay system

› OTTAWA — The Senate of Canada is seeking to move away from the federal government’s Phoenix pay system and find its own external service provider.

In October, the Senate published a request for proposals (RFP) for a service provider to take responsibility for payroll processing and pension benefit payments for current and retired senators, and senators’ and Senate administration employees.
