PNGSF under review


THE Papua New Guinea Sports Foundation (PNGSF) will take stock of its venue operations and management this year, according to a statement.
The strategies that came into effect on Friday aim to add more value to the operations, management and maintenance of its facilities.
In the statement, recently re-appointed executive director Peter Tsiamalili Jr said the organisation would be making recommendations to the board about how best to operate the facilities.
The operations of the facilities are managed by the National Sports Trust Limited, with PNGSF board commissioner Nathaniel Ho entrusted to oversee, review and make recommendations to the board on how best things can be done in relations to the usage of the facilities.
The changes that Tsiamalili referred to include the establishment of a centralised venue booking system.
“The Rita Flynn Indoor Complex will be the only centralised venue for bookings,” Tsiamalili said.
“If you want to use the Sir John Guise Stadium, the Taurama Aquatic Centre and Indoor Complex or any other PNGSF venue, all bookings will be at the Rita Flynn Indoor Complex.
“I believe the Rita Flynn Indoor Complex, adjacent to the SP PNG Hunters homeground — the National Football Stadium — is a central location for all bookings and it also has a safe and secured car park.
“The second strategy to be put in place to mitigate security risk of having cash on site is through a cashless system, where all payments for bookings will be done via eftpos or bank cheque.
“All amounts from K20 and above must be paid via eftpos or bank cheque.
“Lastly, we will be introducing a toll free number for all our Port Moresby residents to call for information regarding events or give feedback on services provided by our team.”
